CUB, Coffee House 
Change Functions 

This year the CUB does not 
have the primary function of 
providing pool, ping pong, and 
pin-baJl as it did in the past. In- 
stead, the primary function of the 
CUB is to serve as a center for 
campus activities. In addition to 
being the setting for many CUB 
sponsored activities, the CUB 
will also be used by various clubs, 
classes, and groups for scheduled 
meetings and for exhibitions. 

This change, along with several 
others which also affect the 
Coffee House, puts into effect the 
CUB Board's spring decisions 
which were the result of concern 
about the lack of use of the game 
room facilities. 

Pool Tables in 
Dorm Rec Rooms 

Game room facilities, such as 
pool, ping pong, and snooker, can 
be found in the recreation rooms 
in Alpha and Beta and next to the 
chapel in Mountclef. These 
games are now available free of 

The former game room and 
game room office houses video- 
tape and television equipment 
and a studio to be used by Drama 
and Communication students. 
Placement. AWS, AMS, 
and ECHO Offices in CUB 

The Career Planning office, the 
AWS and AMS office, and the 
ECHO office will be inside the 
CUB. Mr. Wessels' Career 
Planning Office will be next to the 
AWS and AMS office by the front 
door where the pin-ball machines 
were in the past. The ECHO will 
occupy the space by the ASB 
office which was formerly the 

television area. Building will 
begin soon to complete these 

Coffee House Takes 
Over Lounge Functions 

The Coffee House, which 
functions as part of the CUB, will 
be opened around midday to 
serve as a lounge, because much 
of the CUB's time will now be 
filled with scheduled activities. 
New chairs have been purchased 
for the Coffee House, and Larry 
Baca, Student Director of the 
Coffee House, plans to replace 
the old tables. 

The Barn will also feature an 
expanded food service. The 
addition of a micro-wave oven 
will enable the preparation of 
such foods as hamburgers, onion 
rings, pizza, and chili. 

Tentatively the food service 
section of the Barn will be opened 
from 7:00 p.m. until midnight on 
weekdays and from 2:00 a.m. on 

Many of the table games, such 
as checkers and chess, have 
moved from the CUB to the 
Coffee House. Game nights and 
tournaments will be held. 
(IB Budget Increased 
to Finance Intramurals 

The CUB budget has been in- 
creased this year in order to pay 
not only for the CUB sponsored 
activities and for Coffee House 
entertainment, but also for the 
intramurals program which is 
coming into being through the 
work of Don Hossler and Mark 

According to Don Hossler, 
Director of Campus Activities, 
the CUB will play an active part 
in initiating and planning ac- 
tivities throughout the year. 

New Academic Dean 
Emphasizes Education 


For Dr. Peter Ristuben, 
CLC's new Dean for Academic 
Affairs, the cause of education .s 
well worth fighting for. He has 
devoted his career to the field, 
not only in the United States, but 
in Africa as well. 

Dr. Ristuben counts his African 
experience as a high point in his 
career. For two years, he acted 
as Program Director and an 
Educational Advisor for a 
Teacher-in-Service Education 
Program in Nigeria. The 
program was under the joint 
sponsorship of the Peace Corps 
and the Nigerian Ministry of 

The program evolved out of the 
desire of the Nigerian govern- 
ment for more and better 
teachers. According to Dr. 
Ristuben, "They feel very 
strongly that through education 
many of their social and national 
problems will be solved." 
"In-Service Training 
for Teachers" 

The problem of teacher 
education was compounded 
however, by the shortage of 
teachers in the schools. The 
Teacher-in-Service program was 
designed to combat this problem 
by giving teachers a broader 
education on a tutorial basis 
during evenings and school 

When the program began in 
December 1966, it was staffed 
entirely by Peace Corps volun- 
teers with Dr. Ristuben serving 
as the first operational head. 
Since then, the program has been 
gradually converted, and it is 
now staffed entirely by 

Before returning to the United 
States in 1968, Dr. Ristuben spent 
a summer in Liberia setting up a 
similar program. 

"Collects African Art" 

During his two years in Africa, 
Dr. Ristuben developed an in- 
terest in African art and has 
acquired several interesting 
objects, including some musical 
instruments. "What I did was 
develop a love for African art in 
all its forms," he remarked, but 
added that he is especially fond of 
their sculpture. Both the variety 
and the freedom of African art 
impress him. He describes the 
approach that Africans take to 
their art as "unbounded and 

These same two words could 
also be applied to Dr. Ristuben's 
conception of the African way of 
life and to the way the open 
country of Africa affects the 
pattern of life. He remarked, "I 
had one 2,000 mile tour of duty 
that took fifteen days by land- 
rover to complete." 

"No Traditional Baggage" 

Dr. Ristuben comes to CLC 
with his eyes open to the promise 
of the institution. As he sees it, 

"Here is a school that has the 
great traditions of Christianity 
but it doesn't carry with it all the 
cultural and traditional 
baggage," and he feels that a real 
intellectual and academic- 
freedom exists at CLC. 

A staunch supporter of the 
liberal arts education, he 
believes that "a liberal arts 
education still should be the basis 
for individual and professional 
growth." He sees this as an in- 
tegral part of CLC's mission. 

He is also concerned with 
defining the needs of CLC's 
various constituencies and 
determining how the college can 
best meet those needs. Two 
important constituent groups are 
the Lutheran Church in the 
Southwest and the citizens of 
Ventura County. 

"Exploring Possibilities" 

Another important concern is 
providing students with the best 
possible learning situations, and 
he feels that CLC should be open 
to the innovative ideas being 
tried at other institutions with an 
eye to both their values and their 
limitations. He is also interested 
in facilitating positive 

relationships between students 
and professors. 

Dr. Ristuben comes to CLC 
from Wagner College in Staten 
Island, New York, where he was 
Dean of Academic Affairs. A 
native of Washington State, he 
taught history at PLU in Tacoma 
from 1964 to 1970. His major 
academic interest is American 
Constitutional law. 

"Highly Honored" 

Among his many honors, he 
was named Washington State's 
Outstanding Young Man of the 
Year in 1964 and was a national 
finalist in the White House 
Fellows Competition. He has also 
received several Faculty Growth 
Awards from PLU. 

In 1969, he was awarded a 
stipend from the National En- 
dowment for the Humanities to 
study the renaissance of interest 
in Indian culture among the 
Indians. "Interestingly enough," 
he jested, "I discovered that they 
were more interested in 
becoming economically stable 
than they were in rediscovering 
their culture. Of course, that may 
not be true today." 

"Well, he concluded, "at least 
it was a learning experience." 

Women's Week Set 
for Late September 

The first CLC Women's Week 
will be presented by the Concert- 
Lecture Commission during the 
week of September 27-October 4. 
Several presentations are now 
being planned to provide an 
opportunity for the women of the 
community to hear from suc- 
cessful women who are out- 
standing in their professions. 

Through the intervention of Dr. 
Pamela Kaufman, CLC will host 
screenwriter Eleanor Perry and 
journalist-author Johanna Davis. 
Both Ms. Perry and Ms. Davis 
will speak at 7:00 p.m. in 
Nygreen Hall, Thursday, Sep- 
tember 27; they will relate their 
experiences as women who have 
built successful careers. 

Eleanor Perry is the top- 
ranking woman screenwriter in 
Hollywood today. She was born 
Eleanor Rosenfeld and grew up 
in Cleveland, Ohio, where she 
took an M.A. in Psychiatric 
Social Work from Western 
Reserve University. 

In the meantime, she had 
written a play, which was 
produced by the Theater Guild in 
New York. She also wrote four 
mystery novels under the 
pseudonym O.W. Bayer. 

Eleanor and Frank Perry 
worked together for ten years. 
One of their first projects was 
David and Lisa. In 1962, Ms. 
Perry was nominated for an 
Academy Award for her 

screenplay of David and Lisa. 
Among her other credits are: 
Last Summer, The Swimmer. 
The Deadly Trap (joint 
screenplay). The Diary of a Mad 
Housewife, and The Man Who 
Loved Cat Dancing. 

Eleanor Perry's discussion will 
center around her film, Last 
Summer; it will be shown in the 
Gym, 8:15 p.m. Saturday, Sep- 
tember 22. 

The second speaker will be 
Johanna Davis. Ms. Davis comes 
from a very talented family and 
she grew up within the Motion 
Picture Industry. Her father was 
famed American screenwriter 
Herman Mankiewicz; he is best 
known for his contribution to the 
script of Citizen Kane. Ms. Davis 
is married to CBS film maker 
Peter Davis and they have two 
sons. Peter Davis is best known 
for his documentaries Hunger in 
America and The Selling of the 

Johanna Davis received her 
M.A. from Wellesley. From 1959- 
71 she wrote for Time magazine. 
There she concentrated in 
Modern Living, but also wrote for 
the Books and Show Business 
sections. Ms. Davis has also 
published articles in New York 
magazine, Ladies' Home Jour- 
nal, and Life magazine. She is 
presently enjoying the success of 
her first novel, Life Signs 
(Atheneun), and is working on a

Enrollment Increase 
Foreseen for Fall 

Would someone 
pi ease tel 1 me 
where I'm supposed 
to sleep? 

A slight increase in enrollment 
is being predicted for the '73-74 
school year according to the 
Admissions and Registrars Of- 
fices at CLC. The predictions are 
being based upon comparisons to 
last year's enrollment figures on 
this date. 

According to Ms. Linka 
Johnson, Registrar, CLC can 
expect approximately 1000 full- 
time students on both the un- 
dergraduate and graduate levels. 
In addition, about 500 part-time 
students are expected for the fall, 
primarily on the graduate level. 
"Of course," Ms. Johnson 
cautioned, "we can never really 
be sure until registration." 

Mr. Gene Ekenstam, Director 
of Admissions, estimates that 375 
freshmen and transfer students 
will be attending CLC in the fall. 
As of August 28, 352 of these 
students had made a deposit with 
the Business Office and an ad- 
ditional 57 students had been 

accepted and had not indicated 
their intentions. Ekenstam ex- 
pected to pick up about half of 
those students. 

Last year at this time only 315 
freshmen and transfer students 
had made a deposit and an ad- 
ditional 54 were still undecided. 

Coupled with the increased 
enrollment is the problem of 
dorm space. Dean for Student 
Affairs Ronald Kragthorpe 
commented, "We simply don't 
have any space left." The 
problem has been intensified by 
the loss of one wing of McAfee 
and the decision to reduce the 
number of students to a suite 
from five to four. 

Additional dorm space has 
been provided by converting the 
study rooms in Alpha and Beta to 
residential use, and by moving 
offices to the Campus Activities 
Center (CUB).

Varsity-Alumni Game Set for Saturday 

On September 8 at 2:00 p.m., 
the CLC varsity football team 
will play the CLC alumni greats 
on the CLC football field. The 
game is a benefit sponsored by 
the Alumni Association and 
admission for CLC students will 
be $1.00 with a student I.D. card. 

Over 50 alumni are expected to 
don their uniforms for the annual 
event. Among them will be most 
of the national championship 
team as well as several stars 
from last year's team. 

Al Jones C69) will be holding 
down the quarterback spot for the 
Alums and the best all-time 
guard from CLC, Fred Kemp 
('62), expects to see some action. 
Kemp will be joined by four of his 
teammates from CLC's first 
football squad. 

Stars from recent years will 
include Sam Cvijanovich, Mike 
Sheppard, Gary McGinnes, Tom 
West, and Don Green. 

Proceeds from the game will be 

used for alumni activities, and 
contributions will be made to the 
Alumni Scholarship Fund and the 
John Siemens Memorial 
Scholarship Fund. Siemens was 
Director of Athletics at CLC from 
March 1963 to September 1969. 
Because the game is not a 
regularly scheduled event, 
student I.D. cards will not be 
honored for admission but will 
entitle CLC students to a discount 
of $1.00 off the regular price of

September 7, 1973 


This year finds us With a new 
administrative team. Surely 
things are looking up. But where 
is up? How high? Through whose 
eyes? Only time will tell, but until 
time unfolds, perhaps there are 
some things we can pinpoint as 
being particularly sensitive. 

First a somewhat smaller 
concern: In a time when we are 
all concerned about student 
retention, special attention 
should be given to getting 
classrooms cleaned and ready on 
time. It is very disheartening for 
a new or returning student to 
walk into a class only to find it 
dirty, chairs piled on one another, 
and unfit for anything ap- 
proximating study. 

Now the bigger issues: It is to 
be hoped that CLC will do 
everything it can to recruit and 
encourage students with high 
academic credentials. We have 
some good students here now, 
and we should continue to look for 
students who seriously desire a 
higher education. Obviously the 
G.P.A. is not everything; 
however, where the ability is 
high, every effort should be made 
to provide financial assistance to 
the student who wants an 
education. What is important is 
the student's willirigness to learn, 
his potential as evidenced by past 
grades and scores, and his desire 
to come to California Lutheran 

Another important concern has 

to be faculty salaries. There can 
be no argument that more money 
can be made "outside" a 
parochial system. That ad- 
mission out of the way, it is im- 
portant we do not use that 
pathetic rationale as a crutch to 
excuse mediocre to poor salaries 
for CLC faculty. The salary a 
teacher can make here should be 
just as high as we can possibly 
make them. We should never be 
satisfied with mediocrity in 
salaries, just as we are not 
satisifed with mediocrity in 
performance. Moonlighting is 
never fun. With higher salaries it 
might not be necessary. 

alive. There seems to me to be an 
abundant variety of worship 
opportunities and experiences 
here along with an attitude of 
openness and a willingness to try 
the untried. That is good. How 
refreshing to find a community of 
believers where the words 
"doctrinal unity" are not forever 
being tossed about. All luck to 
The New Earth. 

One more important concern is 
for a faculty lounge. There needs 
to be a place to meet, talk, and 
share ideas, thoughts, ex- 
periences. We tend to keep our 
own baliwicks. The CLC faculty 
community is like some 
sophisticated rabbit warren with 
interconnecting tunnels and 
doors — but with no place to stop, 
rest, and (dangerous word) in- 
teract! Such a place should be a

cerns. They may not be yours.

your concerns with the rest of us. 
Just mail your article to the 
ECHO office in care of the

sure your thoughts will be in-

hopefully stimulating us to 
change, if change is called for.

change is the only reason to 
contribute to this column. Feel 
free to think aloud. Since when

thoughts can be expressed one to 
another? OF FACULTY CON-

of the ECHO this school year. It is 
hoped that faculty members will 
decide to share their comments, 
attitudes and concerns with all of 
us through this column.

The Time Is Now 

Now is the time for members of the Associated Student Body to 
make their student government responsive to their needs. A 
Constitutional Committee is now forming with plans of revitalizing 
the ASB Constitution. All members of the ASB are invited to join 
the committee. 

Last spring, several of us got together to make a number of 
changes in the Constitution, and while I see that those changes were 
definitely worthwhile, they were certainly not sufficient and the 
members of the committee recognized this. For this reason, we 
made provisions for the reformation of the committee at this time. 

There are some obvious weak areas in the present Constitution. 
One of the most important of these is the lack of specific definitions 
of the powers and responsibilities of ASB officers. Another is the 
cumbersome structure of the government. These are areas that 
must be dealt with if we are ever to have an efficient form of 
student government 

The time to act is now if any meaningful changes are to be im- 
plemented in this academic year. Any delay past Thanksgiving, 
and we won't see any meaningful progress until September 1974. 
Frankly, I don't think we can afford that. 

About the "spiritual tone of If you are interested in becoming involved with the committee, 
life" on the campus. I personally contact the Office of the Dean for Student Affairs or the ASB office, 
find it healthy and very much located in the CUB.

"His image is in us all and we 
discover him by discovering the 
likeness of His image in one 
another. — T. Merton — 

I begin by listening to the 
sentence which sounds the theme 
for this column. I would like you 
to hear what I hear. But your 
hearing is uniquely yours so let 
my sharing be an invitation for 
you to listen and listen gently. 

The words sound wonder first. 
Do you hear wonder, know 
wonder? Wonderment comes 
from new persons and being open 
to the surprise and gift God is 
shaping in this life. In these days 
new lives are surrounding us with 
the sounds of wonder. 

Listen for it as these newnesses 
pass close to you. Trust enough to 
open your own life enough to let 
some of your own sounds out. 
How does it sound, your God 
given, God-like image? Listen for 
it. There is much of wonder in 
you, too! 

The accents of the sounds of 
wonder are gentle and affirming. 
It is a gentleness which says, 
"Yes ! " to God in my approach to 
every personal life. It is the 
experience of God's "yes!" to 
you which gives the language of 
faith these accents. The com- 

Editorial Policy 

In hopes of encouraging the exchange of opinions and ideas, the 
ECHO will be most happy to print all letters to the editor. Names 
will be withheld at request, or pseudonyms can be used: however, 
the ECHO will not consider for publication any editorial which has 
been submitted without the true identity of the writer being known 
to the Editor-in-Chief and the Advisor of the ECHO. Also articles 
held not to be in good taste by our publisher, the NEWS- 
CHRONICLE, will not be printed due to technical difficulties — this 
situation is presently beyond the ECHO'S control. 


munity of Cal Lu takes its energy 
from that experience of tender 
acceptance. Yes, there is also a 
capacity for callous deafness but 
I am here to listen for the 
uniqueness of you. 

I believe there are discoveries 
to be made in listening to each 
other. Discoveries about lives 
and about God who feels com- 
fortable in speaking through 
lives. There are many things I 
may not do, but I will listen to 

Let us listen to each other 
gently in these new days. Be sure 
that many of our sounds and 
perceptions are going to be shrill 
and strange. But underneath the 
static there is the discovery to be 
made which names the name of 
"Brother" and "Sister."

Buchanan Sees 

Bright CLC Future 


According to A. Dean 
Buchanan, the new vice- 
president of Financial Affairs, 
five hundred small private 
colleges will die by 1980, because 
they are "either failing to serve 
the needs of the students, are not 
sensitive to the change in com- 
munities and the times, or can't 
engender the funds necessary to 
continue functioning." However, 
he states, CLC will be one of the 
select few to survive. 

Buchanan indicated that CLC's 
"strong support base from its 
relationship with the Lutheran 
church" is the most important 
element in maintaining the 
future of the college. 

The Lutheran churches in the 
state of California and its neigh- 
boring states, he explained, 
create an unique pool of students 
which is unavailable to other 
small private colleges. 

Lutheran congregations, who 
seem to show a great loyalty to 
Lutheran-based Institutions, will 
constantly feed in new students to . 
CLC at a time when other 
colleges will be suffering from a 
decreased population of young 
people and a decrease in desire 
for college education. 

Also, CLC's future will be 
brightened by the fact that there 
are no other Lutheran colleges 
near to compete with. Therefore 
CLC will be able to "capitalise on 
its location and serve the con- 
stituency in this area. 

A second factor which is im- 
portant to the continuance of CLC 
is the retention of students. To 
achieve a high retention of 
students, Buchanan feels that 
CLC must "provide a superior 

education, be concerned about 
living of campus (socially and 
otherwise), and have concern for 
the student as an individual." 

Buchanan feels that concern 
for the student as an individual is 
important. "People are tired of 
being numbers," he asserted. 

Buchanan stated that when he 
visited the CLC campus before he 
resigned his eleven-year position 
as chief business officer of 
Pacific Lutheran University, he 
was "most delighted and in- 
trigued with the sense of com- 
munity" he felt. 
"Of all the colleges I have 
visited, this one had the friend- 
liest and warmest atmosphere," 
he remarked. He enthusiastically 
added that this warm at- 
mosphere had also been written 
up and praised in the report on 
CLC made by the Accreditation 

He feels that much of this 
feeling is lost as a school becomes 
large. Therefore a student 
enrollment of 1200 would be a 
"good level" for CLC, because it 
would not be so large that the 
warmth would be decreased, and 
at the same time, the College 
would have a more substantial 
financial basis. 

In addition to being attracted to 
CLC because of its warmth, 
Buchanan also wanted to be part 
of its growth. 

Particularly exciting to v 
Buchanan are the plans for 
building at CLC in a time when no 
other academic institutions can 
even consider building because of 
"high prices and low resources" 
or because they have enough 
buildings already. This will be

nauguration Set for October 27 

Dr. Mark A. Mathews will be 
inaugurated as the third 
President of California Lutheran 
College on Saturday, October 27, 
at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium. 
His administrative team will also 
be included in the inauguration 

A firm believer in the concept 
of participatory management, 
Dr. Mathews views his 
inauguration based on the theme 
"The New Covenant" as the 
dedication of a team effort that 
together will provide the 
leadership of the college in the 
years ahead. 

Dr. Mathews, who was first 
appointed acting president in 
February of 1972, was named 
President by the Board of 
Regents on July 1, 1972, following 
a fifteen month search for a 
successor to Dr. Raymond M. 
Olson, and a review of more than 
150 candidates. 

Dr. Mathews concluded his 
first year in office in July of 1973 
with a budget in the black and the 
addition of a new classroom 
building (Nygreen Memorial 
Hall) that marked the first major 
instruction on the campus in 
nore than eight years. 

With a reorganized ad- 
ministration that includes three 
new vice presidents, all of whom 
have assumed office since June 1, 
a Dean for Student Affairs who 
came in the fall of 1972, and the 
College Pastor why was ap- 
pointed in 1969 ithe only 
holdover), Dr. Mathews looks 
forward to building a solid 
academic reputation for the four 
year liberal arts college that first 
opened its doors to students in the 
fall of 1961. 

The new administrators are A. 
Dean Buchanan, Vice President 
for Business and Finance, who 
came to CLC from Pacific 
Lutheran University where he 
held a similar position for 11 
years; the Rev. Rcald Kindem, 
Vice President for Development, 
a parish pastor with the 
American Lutheran Church since 
his ordination in 1955; Dr. Peter 
Ristuben, Vice President for 
Academic Affairs, who came 
from Wagner College, Staten 
Island, N.Y., where he also held a 
similar post; and Dean for 
Student Affairs, Ronald 
Kragthorpe, previously an 
Associate Dean of Students at the 
University of California at Davis. 
The Rev. Gerald K. Swanson 
serves as college pastor. 

Inauguration activities will run 
from October 25-28 with the 
annual Convocation of the 
College set for October 26. Guest 
speaker at the Convocation will 
be the President of the American 
Lutheran Church the Rev. Dr. 
David W. Preus. (California 
Lutheran College is the only 
Lutheran College in the country 
that is supported by two national 
Lutheran Church bodies, namely 
the American Lutheran Church 
and the Lutheran Church in

students to the attention of graduate schools, the Graduate Record 
Examinations Board last year established the Minority Graduate 
Student Locater Service. 

All minority students who are interested in pursuing graduate 
study and who would like their names made available to graduate 
schools, should be interested in the Locater Service may help them.

Paintings by American artists 
created before 1914 are being 
sought in Ventura County by 
Assistant Professor Jerald 
Slattum of the California 
Lutheran College Art Depart- 
ment. The paintings will be in- 
cluded in a national bicentennial 
survey conducted by the 
Smithsonian Institute in 
Washington, D.C. with the aid of 
libraries, colleges, museums, 
and individuals throughout the 

"Paintings of importance have 
already been discovered in 
Ventura County," Prof. Slattum 
said, "however residents who 
own American art works from 
those stored in the garage to the 
watercolor or oil hanging over 
the couch are urged to contact 
CLC." Prof. Slattum may be 
reached at (805) 492-2411, ext. 247, 
or 342 or by writing him in care of 
the Art Department, CLC, 
Thousand Oaks, CA 91360. 

He added that the paintings 
must predate 1914 but can be in 
the following media: oils, 
watercolor, fresco, or tempera. 

"The paintings in the survey 
are not always masterpieces of 
art, however, they contain social 
and art historical values which 
make every painting important 
to the survey," he said. 

Paintings will be listed by 
painter, subject, location, date, 
dimensions, media, and 

Salttum indicated that an 
owner's right to privacy and 
protection will be respected and 
will be held from open reference 
at the owner's request. He em- 
phasized that the survey is an 
inventory only, and that pain- 
tings will not be evaluated, 
analyzed, or authenticated. 

The inventory, entitled 
"Bicentennial Inventory of 
American Paintings Executed 
Before 1914," is in preparation 
for the celebration of the 
bicentennial anniversary of the 
nation and the record of per- 
formance of the nation in the

American art which has long 
been neglected has come under 
scholarly investigation in recent 
years although much of this study 
has been concentrated in the 
East. The effort by the 
Smithsonian will be to document 
art throughout the nation. 

Since the American population 
is a composite of all the 
nationalities of the world, the 
inventory considers any painter 
substantially identified with this 
country by birth or adopted 
residence as an American artist.

Explosions Plague 

Mike Benz, Head Resident of 
Mt. Clef, called a mandatory 
dorm meeting on Monday, 
September 24, for the primary 
purpose of discussing the series 
of explosions which have plagued 
the dorm for the past week. 

After going over some of the 
dorm policies which had been 
discussed at previous meetings, 
Benz gave a brief explanation of 
the feelings of the housing and 
administrative personnel 
towards the explosions. They had 
concluded that the bombings had 
proceeded beyond the level of a 
practical joke, and were to the 
point of endangering human life 
and private property. 

One explosive device had been 
fastened at eye level to the door 
of R.A. John Ridenour and set off. 
In the opinion of Benz, the ex- 
plosion coulu easily have cost 
Ridenour his sight if he had 
opened his door as the bomb went 

The explosives have grown in 
magnitude from fire crackers to 
devices as powerful as an M-80, 
and possibly a quarter stick of 
dynamite, according to Benz's 

Dean Kragthorpe attended the 
meeting to give support to Benz 
and to answer any questions that 
the residents of Mt. Clef might 
have. His attendance, stated 
Benz, was to emphasize that the 
explosions had gone beyond a 
practical joke level, and that the 
administration had been con- 
sulted and was concerned about 
the safety of the occupants of Mt. 
Clef and the gravity of the

Csellak Joins Counseling Staff 


Mr. Bill Csellak has joined the 
counseling staff at CLC this year 
as practical experience toward 
his Masters degree in 
Educational Psychology from 
CSV Northridge. Mr. Csellak, a 
teacher of Journalism and 
American Literature at 
Thousand Oaks High School for 
five years and advisor to the high 
school's newspaper and year- 
book, stated that in order to earn 
his Masters degree, a certain 
number of hours must be spent 
actually counseling. "The 
placement service at Northridge 
ran out of positions and so I had a 
choice either to be left in 
'drydock', delavine mv degree, 

or go out and shop around 
myself." Mr. Csellak shopped 
around and found CLC. He 
discovered that CLC "would 
actually benefit" from his work 
in counseling. 

Mr. Csellak will be in the 
counseling center on Mondays 
from 3:30 to 5:30 and a student 
can come in and talk about 
anything he wants to, from 
roommate problems to troubles 
at home. "The whole gamut is 
what I envision," was Mr. 
Csellak's remark. On Wednesday 
nights from 8:00 to 10:00 Mr. 
Csellak holds an encounter group 
and on Thursday is again in the 
counseling center from 3:30 to 

CLC Resurrects Miracle Movies 

The Concert/Lecture Com- 
mission is pleased to announce 
that the resurrection of the oft- 
buried Miracle Movies will take 
place on September 29 in 
Nygreen Hall. The relics that 
have been dug up this time are 
two infamous celluloid classics 
"I'm No Angel" and "Road to 
Zanzibar." The question on 
everyones* mind is WHY? We 
shall not attempt to elucidate on 
the theological implications that 
are inherent in the selection of 
these two films. We will instead, 
merely tell you about them. 

"I'm No Angel" was made in 
1933 and stars Mae West. It has 
been said that this one film 
brought up the very restrictive 
censorship code that is just now 
being broken down. This film has 
never been shown in its entirety 
on television and needless to say, 
we will show it uncut and in its 
original form. As Tira the lion- 

tamer, Mae is the star attraction 
of the carnival. Her rendition of 
"They Call Me Sister Honky 
Tonk" is one of the high points of 
her career. The film contains the 
lines "Peel me a grape, Beulah" 
and "Come up and see me 
sometime," as well as a hilarious 
courtroom plea by Ms. West 

The second feature "Road to 
Zanzibar" stars Bob Hope, Bing 
Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. 
Bing and Bob play a couple of 
carnival performers who spend 
their last nickel to join a safari 
through Africa, where they 
bungle their way through jungle 
paths in search of a diamond 
mine. If you have never seen a 
"Road" picture be sure and catch 
this one. 

Future Miracle Movies will 
include "Some Like It Hot," 
"Zulu" and others. Watch for 
them. Remember our motto, "If 
it's good, it's a Miracle! 

Graduate Exams Set for October 

The Graduate Record Exam is being given at CLC on Saturday, 
October 27. The GRE, similar to college entrance tests, is required 
for admission by most graduate schools in the country. 

A general aptitude test will be offered in the morning. The ad- 
vanced tests, which test the individual in his major area of study 
will be given that afternoon. 

Cost of each test is $10.00. 

The last day to register for the October test without having to pay 
a $3.50 late fee is October 2. Closing date for registration is October 

The October testing date is the first of six national test days. Only 
one other one, in April 1974, will be given at CLC. 

For further information of application, write Educational 
Testing Service, 1947 Center St., Berkeley, CA 94704. 

Jack Ledbetter, Sig Schwarz and other 
members of the r.nglish Department held 
a picnic for English majors on 
September 16. 

5:30 mostly to collaborate with 
Ruth Truman, head counselor. 
Mr. Csellak and his wife, Teri, 
have two children, a four year old 
daughter and a son almost ready 
for his second birthday. 

After completion of his Masters 
degree in Educational 
Psychology, Mr. Csellak stated 
that he would be interested in 

teaching on the college level. "I 
find that I can relate better to 
older students than younger 
students. I have a better rapport 
with adult or adult-thinking in- 
dividuals." Mr. Csellak would 
also like to earn his Ph.D. 
eventually, and his Masters 
degree in Journalism. 

As a final statement about 
himself Mr. Csellak said, "My 
philosophy is to keep myself well- 
rounded enough that I avoid 
being pigeon-holed." 

When asked about how he felt 
about CLC and its students, Mr. 
Csellak called the students "a 
very cohesive group. I have not 
found the typical apathetic 
college atmosphere that I have 
found elsewhere." Mr. Csellak is 
also impressed with the "active 
involvement" of CLC students. 

Changes Made In 

Barn Sets New Goals 

"We just want to make this a 
place the kids like to go." This 
was the response of Larry Baca, 
Student Director of the Coffee 
House, when asked about the new 
goals of the Barn. "I feel as a 
student that we have no place to 
call our own. The College Union 
Board has agreed that the Barn 
should be used strictly as a 
student facility." 

Many changes have occured 
since last year. The menu has 
many new features, such as 
hamburgers, hot dogs, various

In September 1974, a new 
credential law will come into 
effect. This law (The Ryan Act) 
will cause a number of changes in 
the procedures for applying for a 
teaching credential. 

1. An examination will be 
required to test the candidate's 
competency in the areas of the 
major and in reading. 

2. Majors have been redefined, 
particularly effected are the 
Sciences and the Social Sciences. 
Any student majoring in a 
Science or in a Social Science 
should contact their major ad-

The price on most items has 
stayed the same or gone down, 236. 
while quantities have remained 
equal to those of previous years. 
Ice cream cost has risen because 
last year the Barn experienced a 
loss on this item. "We don't want 
to make a mint," says Baca, "we 
would just like to pay for the 
micro-wave oven we purchased." 

New additions in the barn in- 
clude the tables, which are 
presently on loan from the CUB, 
although plywood has been 
purchased to build new tables. 
The stage, which has been the 
setting for many interesting 
entertainers, was added toward

different clubs and organizations 
on campus. The AMS and AWS 
will be sponsoring a movie. The 
Social-Publicity Commission was 
responsible for bringing Carol 
Cristy as entertainment. Baca's

GLC Grads Accept Admissions Posts 

Mike Sheppard and Jean 
Blomquist, graduates of CLC, 
have assumed the positions 
vacated by Fred Lauter and Lee 
Danforth in the admissions staff. 

Gene Ekenstam, Director of 
Admissions, announced that 
Mike Sheppard will work in 
student counseling and 
recruitment in the Pacific North- 
west and in southern California. 
Jean Blomquist will be visiting 
various schools and churches 
advising students about ad- 
mission requirements. 

As a 1973 graduate of the 
college, Jean majored in English, 
was selected as a member of 
"Who's Who Among American 
Colleges and Universities," and 

was active in the Interrobang 
singing group. She was also 
chosen as the 1972 Lucia Bride, 
an honor annually given to the 
senior woman who exemplifies 
Christian qualities. 

Also a 1973 graduate of the 
college, Mike Sheppard majored 
in Economics and Management, 
was named the Outstanding 
Senior, and was also a member of 
"Who's Who Among American 
Colleges and Universities." Mike 
played three years of varsity 
football, four years of varsity 
baseball, and was named the 
Most Valuable Lineman award 
for the NAIA Division II cham- 
pionship game. Mike plans to be 
married in December to Gail 

Mizrahi Performs on 
Lute and Guitar 


If you had been in the Little 
Theatre Thursday, October 20, 
you might have thought you were 
watching a puppet backed by a 
tape recorder. Morri Mizrahi is 
such a talented lutenist and 
guitarist that his fingers move 
almost too fast to be detected, 
appearing somewhat like an IBM 
teletype printout. One can just 
imagine the fantastic amount of 
practice that must be involved in 
putting on such an outstanding 
performance, not to mention the 
research work necessary to find 
the lute music. 

All Mizrahi 's pieces were dug 
out of old manuscripts spread far 
and wide and dating from the 
sixteenth century, the time when 
lute playing was at its height. 
That was also the last period of 
widespread lute playing, and the 
few lutenists since then have 
merely re-interpreted the work of 
that century. Mizrahi himself 
looked like he had stepped 
straight out of the streets of 
Renaissance London. 

He plays all his pieces from 
memory, which is nothing short 
of astounding when you realize 
that his lute has fourteen strings 
and that lute music is not written 
on a scale such as we know 
musical scales today. 

For his finale, Mizrahi played 
an Italian piece designed for a 
soloist to display his mastery of 
the instrument through im- 
provisation. It consists of four 
voices in a somewhat statement- 
response pattern. If it seems 
difficult to merely improvise on 
the four distinct voices, imagine 
Mizrahi sustaining all four voices 
at the same time while im- 
provising on them all. It was 
utterly fantastic. 

Mizrahi also plays a mean 
guitar, and at first it seems 
strange that, although the lute is 
a far more rare instrument and 
would seem more difficult to 
make, his lute only cost $650 
while his guitar cost $1500. 
However, once you've heard him 
play you can see why — the sound 
seems almost too pure to be 
coming from a mere guitar, or 
for that matter, even Beethoven's 
piano. It was just too much. 

Mizrahi is a member of the 
CLC faculty and gives lessons as 
well as teaching classes. If you 
are Interested, contact the Music 
Department for details. He has 
an album of previously 
unrecorded lute work tentatively 
due to be released in February. I 
would strongly recommend that 
you buy the album if you can find 
it; Mizrahi is just too far-out to 
believe if you haven't heard him. 

Winters, another 1973 graduate of 

Fred Lauter has resigned from 
his position of associate director 
of admissions to accept a position 
as instructor in history and 
political science at Delaware 
State College in Dover. He joined 
the CLC staff in 1970. Formerly 
he was director of admissions at 
Fairleigh Dickinson University in 
Rutherford, New Jersey. 

Tennis coach for the past two 
years, Lee Danforth has entered 
McGeorge School of Law in 
Sacramento. He was a political 
science major and a member of 
Pi Gamma Mu, national social 
sciences honor society. 

Germans Sponsor 

The Teutonentag, — a day 
devoted to fun and frolic and 
designed to give students of 
German as much interaction with 
the language as possible, — has 
been planned for Saturday, 
October 20, at California 
Lutheran College. 

There will be contests, exhibits, 
a luncheon featuring German 
delicatessen specialities, skit 
competitions, charades, and 
outdoor events all sponsored 
under the auspices of the German 

"Although the Teutonentag is 
structured somewhat like a 
foreign language field day," Mrs. 
Ursula Wichman, German in- 
structor said, "the purpose of the 
day is not to cull the finest 
students, but rather to allow as 
many students as possible to 
have as much fun as they can 
with and through German." 

Contests will emphasize using 
German to communicate rather 
than to emphasize grammar. 
There will be treasure hunts 
employing German clues and 
"mystery personalities" who will 
reveal themselves when fully 
probed in German. For (hose 
students who feel their German 
needs more polish before en- 
tering competitions, there will be 
numerous exhibits, cultural 
films, and skits to observe. 

All area high school and college 
German students are invited to 
attend according to Mrs. Wich- 
man as well as any interested 
persons of German background. 

Those desiring to assist with 
the Teutonentag are asked to 
contact Mrs. Wichman at CLC at 
(805) 492-2411. ext. 240. 

The German Department at 
California Lutheran College will 
offer eight outstanding German 
language films this year which 
will be open to the public free of 

The films will be shown in 
Nygreen Memorial Hall at 7 p.m. 

"We invite all students 
studying German whether in high 
school or college as well as in- 
terested persons to attend," Dr. 
Robert Stanford, Chairman of the 
German Department, said. 

The first film, which was shown 
on Thursday, Sept. 19, was 
"Buddenbrooks" based on 
Thomas Mann's prize-winning 
novel which traces the rise and 

decline of an upper middle class 
family in Northern Germany. 
There will be English subtitles 
with this film. 

The remainder of the film 
schedule is as follows: 

Oct. 17 — "Hokuspokus" (with 
English subtitles) 

Dec. 5 — "Heidi" (also with 
English subtitles) 

Dec. 12— "Konig von Bayern" 
(King of Bavaria) 

Feb. 10 — "Max and Moritz" 

Feb. 27 — "Munchausen" 

Mar. 20 — "Wir Wun-

Kallas Authors Text on the Apocalypse 

Dr. James Kallas of the Religion Department has authored a new 
book, God and Satan in the Apocalypse, which is scheduled for 
release this week by the Augsburg Publishing House. 

In the book, Dr. Kallas analyzes the four most popular ways in 
which Christians have dealt with the Book of Revelation. 

He documents his work with biblical and historical examples and 
stresses that the epistle must first be understood as its original 
audience, the Christians of the churches of Asia Minor, understood 
it. He reviews the origins and style of apocalyptic writing and 
describes its symbolic language as a camouflaged message of 

Although he agrees with those who emphasize the promise of 
Christ's return, he repudiates the view that John's apocalypse is a 
specific schedule of future events. 

Dr. Kallas, a prolific writer has previously published The 
Significance of the Synoptic Miracles (1961) and The Satan ward 
View: A Study in Pauline Theology (1966), Jesus and the Power of 
Satan (1968), The Story of Paul (1966) and A Layman's Introduction 
to Christian Thought (1969). 

He was recently elected to serve as Vice Chairman of the 
American Lutheran Church's Division for World Mission and Inter- 
Church Cooperation. The new 21 member board now assumes the 
responsibilities of the former Board of World Missions. 

TV Class Has Guest Lecturer 

Mr. Don Cash, veteran make- 
up artist for movies and 
television, was a guest lecturer at 
CLC on Thursday evening, 
September 20. Cash spoke to the 
television class about the joys 
and pitfalls of working with 
make-up for over twenty years. 

Cash, of medium height with 
slightly disheveled hair and a 
neatly trimmed mustache and 
goatee, first mentioned that 
many students were probably 
curious about the contents of a 
professional make-up kit. He 
displayed his box of paints and 
pencils, while fielding questions 
from the class. In one little 
drawer, he had several different 
hairpieces for use as mustaches 
and beards. He explained that 
they were all fiat and mussed 
from being in storage. Cash then 
astonished class members by 
giving a tug on his own goatee, 
which consequently came off in 
his hand. It too, was artificial. 

Cash gave students a chance to 
view some actual techniques with 
make-up. He used class mates 
Rick Nelson and Donald Sim- 
mons for models, and gave them 
artificial scars and open cuts. 

Cash said that the most dif- 
ficult thing to do in make-up is to 
make appliances, such as noses, 
and foreheads, for changing 
faces. Yet his favorite aspect of 
his art is this part. 

He worked on Walt Disney's 
The Shaggy Dog and designed the 
step - by - step transformation of 
a boy to a dog. Later Cash used 
the knowledge he had gained 
working on The Shaggy Dog to 
create appliances and make-up 
techniques which enabled the 
filming of Planet of the Apes. He 
worked under the direction of 
another make - up man on this 
film so when the make - up won 
an Academy Award, his superior 
received it. 

Cash has worked on numerous 
movies, such as A Star is Born, 
The Man With The Iron Mask, 
Fort Apache, She Wore A Yellow 
Ribbon, and the Cheers of Mrs. 
Bishop. He greatly admires Lon 
Chaney's wor k. 

Cash does not use latex 
anymore for appliances. Instead 
he uses plastics which were 
developed during World War II 
that are much more durable. 

Cash has also worked with 
prosthetics in the remodeling of 
faces of war casualties during 
WWII. He started with a lab in his 
home and would receive calls for 
these jobs at the studio. "They 
never knew I was doing it until it 
broke in the newspapers. Then an 
FBI man saw it and that's how I 
got in the Army." 

Cash also originated the first 
plastic artificial eye. The glass 
eyes at the time were as fragile 
as Christmas tree ornaments and 
were greatly affected by rapid 
changes in temperature. They 
often exploded. His "tailgate" 
eye was a tremendous 
breakthrough, and the Govern- 
ment soon had him working 
exclusively on these. 

Cash received an award from 
the Smithsonian Institute for his 
work with war casualties. There 
is a whole section in the famous 
museum with the wax figures 
that he made for prosthetics. He 
made "at least two-hundred and 
fifty or more" of these. 

When asked if he had any 
make-up tips for women. Cash 
volunteered, "Don't become a 
clown. Put it on as natural as you 
can And don't overdo it." 

After speaking for over two and 
a half hours, Cash began to pack 
up his cases and the class broke 
up. At this time, one of the 
students approached Cash and 
queried why he had become a 
make-up artist. He responded, 
"Because the nearest thing to 
ham is grease."

Bonhoffer Featured in Conversations 

Every Monday morning 80 to 90 
faculty, students, an ad- 
ministrators come together in 
Mt. Clef lounge at 10:10 a.m. to 
share and learn insights with 
each other in Christian 
education. October 25, seven 
humanities tutorial students 
organized by Pastor Gerry 
Swanson and Reg Akerson 
shared excerpts from Dietrich 
Bonhoeffer's first book Cost of 
Discipleship, and Bonhoeffer's 
Letters and Papers from Prison. 

The Hum. Tut. students 
presented two themes of 
Bonhoeffer, the first being 
"Cheap Grace vs. Costly Grace." 

In their presentation Beth Nochta 
and Bill Simmons acted out a skit 
demonstrating personal con- 
fusion between the two, which in 
turn set the mood for Rita 
Dybdahl's comments on the 
theme. The students stressed that 
sinning just because one knows 
God's Grace is forgiving is an 
attitude of Cheap Grace. The 
students went on to explain 
Bonhoeffer's concern for Costly 
Grace. "Grace is costly because 
it calls us Jo follow Christ. It is 
costly because life then and only 
then is at its best. Faith is only 
real in obedience." 

The second theme established 
was through the Greek word, 


Heart Association Announces Cyclethon 

The Ventura County Heart Association announced "Cyclethon 
'73" set for October 13 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The course will 
begin at CLC and form a circle via Janss Road, and all cycle en- 
thusiasts are invited to participate. 

Cyclethons will be held concurrently throughout the state and 
prizes will be given on both local and statewide levels. Top prize at 
the state level is a Honda motorcycle. 

Participants will be served free french fries and cokes along the 
5.8 mile route. 

Those interested in participating should contact Dr. Curt Nelson. 
The event is sponsored by the Conejo Valley Junior Women's Club.

If getting up at 7:00 every morning for simple Calculus sounds 
like fun, just picture the alarm going off at 4:00 and your roommate 
stumbling over the bicycle parked in the middle of the floor in a 
frantic attempt to reach k. Of course, he never does because you've 
already knocked it off the bureau with a tennis ball (all the outlets 
near the bed are being used by your stereo which needs a new 
needle, your cassette player which only works if you hold the 
"play" button down with your finger, your twenty-year-old Zenith 
radio which gets static on one station and a high-pitched hum (440 
vibes/sec.) on all the rest, and your desk lamp which has a burned- 
out bulb). Well, now that you're up, you might as well put on your 
"Cheech and Chong" album to see if the lines have changed any 
since last night. 

If trying to pick out the funny parts from the scratching noises 
doesn't do the damage to your brain, you can always head down to 
the cafeteria. This is one of the most popular spots for thinking on 
campus. Here, we can overhear the philosophy majors con- 
templating how "the one" becomes "the many" and yet always 
remains the same. Or the biology majors searching for a new 
kingdom in which to classify the unique life forms indigenous to the 
area. Perhaps even the chemistry majors attempting to analyze 
the synthesis of said life in a hostile environment, or the religion 
majors expounding on the values of suffering. This is also the only 
place in the U.S.A. where alchemy is still practiced. Of course, you 
can even eat breakfast there, sometimes. Well, so much for an 
overworked theme. 

Moving right along (if you're still able to follow the bouncing ball 
after all this), we head for class. Classes at CLC have the in- 
teresting property of starting at easy to remember times like 7:40, 
10:50, 1:20, or even 4:63. But, unfortunately, classes aren't that 
funny, so we won't bother with them here. Then again, neither is 
this column, so it really wouldn't matter, anyway. 

The other day (this is where we really get lost), the sun came up. 
Later that same day, the sun went down and Alpha had a fire drill. 
Logical, right? Actually, it was just an excuse for the dirty old 
firemen to get some excitement as the girls got a chance to model 
their new nighties. Negligees to the front, please! I can hardly wait 
until Mt. Clef has one and I can show off my "fruit of the loom." 

Speaking of Mt. Clef, we seem to have been invaded by the John 
Birch Society — an unknown band of Republican party members is 
still celebrating the Fourth of July. This led to a mandatory dorm 
meeting (i.e., everyone had to be there) at which we were also 
informed that mops, not garbage cans, were for washing the floors. 
Obviously, the J.B.'s were unaffected by the speech and were heard 
later that night singing "God Bless America" in the key of very 

But they weren't the only flats on campus. There was that red- 
headed lead player Saturday night at the AWS dance. The band was 
"Bulk" and my guess is that's what they eat for lunch. At the 
aforementioned dance, we were also mistreated to a ralphing 
coarse of "Goria." 

There's a lot of bulk circulating around campus, too. It seems 
that CLC bulletins must all be processed through the campus mail 
before they can be discarded. This is known as "student in- 
volvement." CLC was the first institution to instigate the practice 
of large-scale recycling. They haven't used their printing presses in 
thirteen years. I believe in ecology, too. I've been recycling my 
humor thirteen years (I didn't start getting into ecology until I was 
five) . Well, whatever you do, keep your head out of the muck. 

"Metanoia," meaning repen- 
tance, a reversal of the past, 
reformation, of a change of mood 
or feelings. Here Bonhoeffer uses 
the example of Paul on the road 
to Damascus. When seeing Jesus, 
Paul realized his sins and turned 
completely around, i.e., from 
persecuting Christians to 
ministering to them. " 'Metanoia' 
is found in many areas of the 
Bible," explained Judy Todd. 
"For instance, Matthew 18:3, 
Luke 15:7, Acts 20:20, 21, etc. all 
talk about reversal, or repen- 
tance, and finding truth through 

Next Dean Kragthorpe will 
conclude the series on Bonhoeffer

World Come of Age." Following 
next week's series conclusion, 
will come the start of con- 
versation on "Prayer."

Volunteers Degin Training for Hotline 

On September 18 there was a meeting on campus of all people 
interested in working on the Conejo Hotline. A representative from 
the Hotline explained the training program which consists of three 
months of on the job training. After the three months is over, the 
new full-fledged listener takes one four-hour shift a week. 

Twenty people attending the meeting. Most were CLC students 
and the majority had not had any previous experience working on a 

The volunteers teamed up with another person they didn't know 
and after ten minutes they introduced each other to the rest of the 
group. .Later each person took a turn at being a listener and a 
person with a problem. The listener was evaluated by the rest of the 
group on the basis of sincerity and responsiveness. 

Part of the training is observing how calls are handled and then 
eventually taking calls while a "senior" listener looks on. Working 
on the hotline is volunteer work, but volunteers are requried to 
meet certain standards.

professor of Education, received 
her doctoral degree in Reading 
and Language Arts from the 
University of Pittsburg. 

Dr. Ferm wrote her disser- 
tation on "An Assessment of 
Elementary Teachers' 
Awareness of Specific Listening 
Skills." She conducted her study 
in Ventura County with a random 
sampling of 250 elementary 
teachers that represented sixteen 
districts and one hundred

elementary schools in Ventura 

According to Dr. Ferm her 
dissertation will be made 
available to Mrs. Theodora 
Shoesmith, Coordinator of 
Elementary Curriculum for the 
Ventura County Public Schools. 

She pointed out that the 
dissertation would be helpful in 
identifying specific listening 
skills that are recommended for 
teaching at the elementary level 

and useful in suggesting 
techniques for teaching par- 
ticular skills. 

Dr. Ferm, a native of Buffalo, 
New York, received her Bachelor 
of Science degree from the State 
University College at Buffalo in 
1940 and her Master of Science 
degree from the same college in 

A teacher of wide experience, 
she has taught at the elementary 
and junior high level in Western 
New York State and has also 
taught sixteen years at the 
college level at the State 
University College in Buffalo, 
California State College . in 
California, Pa., and at CLC. 

She has supervised student 
teachers, graduate teaching 
interns, and taught un- 
dergraduate and graduate 
courses in Reading and 
Language Arts, Children's 
Literature, and elementary and 
secondary education.

"fun" because there will be few 
limitations on the types of 
buildings which can be made. 

"Three years ago CLC was only 
concerned about survival, but 
now we can plan to build, because 
we have no long term in- 
debtness," Buchanan said. "Last 
year CLC reduced its debt 
$300,000 and will probably reduce 
it by that or more this year." 

Buchanan takes much pride in 
his contribution in planning the 
very beautiful and modern 
Student Union Building at PLU. 
He visited forty unions before the 
design was settled for the PLU 
building. He also helped plan six 
residence halls which were built 
when he was at PLU. 

He also expressed enthusiasm 
for the new method of team 
administration which Mark 
Mathews has established for 
CLC. He enjoys being with a 
college that uses the best modern 
methods of business ad- 

According to the statement 
Buchanan made in the Tacoma 
News Tribune and PLU's 
Mooring Mast, Buchanan left 
PLU because he felt that his 
contribution had "perhaps been 
made," and that his "working 
relationships" in recent years 
have frequently placed un- 
pleasant stress which I desire to 
avoid," speaking of the years 
after Dr. Mortvedt's presidency 
at PLU. 

After his resignation for PLU's 
staff, Donald Yoder, the 
president of the PLU student 
body wrote, "The resignation of 
A. Dean Buchanan is a loss to our 
entire community. His interest, 
activity, and counsel in dealing 
with student concerns has been of 
unmatched benefit. His 
association with the ASPLU will 
be missed greatly."

Every Thursday evening, at 
7:00p.m. a unique class meets in 
the Little Theatre at CLC. This 
course, under the direction of Ms. 
Barbara Hudson Dudley, is 
designed to enlighten students 
about all aspects of television. 
The class is small in number but 
this does not seem to hamper its 

Ms. Dudley plans to teach a 
loosely structured class, with 
room for individual interests 
and creativity. The students 
submitted papers with their ideas 
and areas of concern. From these 
suggestions, Ms. Dudley will 
determine the content of the 
course. As well as these areas of 
concentration, she will include 
studies and lectures that she 
deems helpful from her own 
experience with television. 

There are many varied in- 
terests among the class mem- 
bers. They are involved with 
acting, producing, commercials, 
music for tv, taping, and there 
are some who are simply 
enamoured with all parts of 

On Thursday, September 13, 
Ms. Margaret Muse visited the 
class as a guest lecturer. While 
pursuing an acting career, Ms. 
Muse also makes television and 
radio commercials. She spoke on 
the delights and difficulties of 
working with advertisements. 

After hearing Ms. Muse's 
sample voice tape, which is sent 
to prospective employers via her 
agent, many students were 
anxious to tackle the commercial 
scripts that she had brought with 
her. They gained new respect for 
actors in TV commercials. It was 
extremely tempting to kid or 
shine on the material, and Ms. 
Muse cautioned that this was a 
sure way to lose a job. One of the 
most important things is to keep 
smiling. This somehow lends 

warmth to the voice and tends to 
make one sound more sincere. 
This is paramount even when 
doing a voice over commercial 
(where the actor is not seen on 
camera.) In addition, Ms. Muse 
warned, "You've really got to 
love that product." 

Other activities included a field 
trip to CBS Studios in Hollywood 
to view the taping of a Carroll 
O'Connor (Archie Bunker of All 

In The Family) television special 
on Sunday, September 16. 

In the future, the class plans to 
work in the new videotaping 
studio on campus, which is 
located in the CUB. Besides 
numerous field trips, there will 
be several guest lecturers 
visiting the students. Among 
these is a retired make-up 
technician, who worked for many 
years in television, and a 
member of the staff of the

The man behind it all, Coach Bob 

Shoup confers with assistants 

up in the press box via headphones. 

CLC's football alumni have 
produced some notable 
achievements from among their 
ranks, including the College's 
first Alumni Association 
president, minister, doctor, 
lawyer, psychologist and 
business executive. 

Kingsmen alums have won 
graduate scholarships at USC, 
Oregon, Washington, North- 
western, Chicago and UCLA, 
just to name a few. 

Kingsmen have also made 
significant contributions to CLC 
in leadership positions in ad- 
missions, development, com- 
munity relations and as members 
of the College's faculty. 

The first alumnus asked to 
speak at a Homecoming was a 
CLC football player. One of the 
first students to study abroad was 
a Kingsmen gridder. CLC 
athletes also served their country 
with distinction during the Viet 
Nam conflict. 

An outstanding product of CLC 
is its football coaching alumni. In 
1972, six teams with CLC alums 
on their staffs won league titles. 
In a field conspicuously lacking 
job openings, Cal Lutheran has 
the unusual reputation of not 
being able to fill the number of 
requests for football coaching 
candidates from its graduating 
class each year. 

In a period of ever -expanding 
athletic "scholarships," CLC has 
set an example for others to note 
and emulate. Rather than take 
money away from the College, 
Kingsmen football playersyearly 
bring in over $250,000 in net in- 

In summary, California 
Lutheran College has produced a 
rich heritage in a very short time. 
Honored by the state of 
California, the county of Ventura, 
the city of Thousand Oaks and 
numerous other organizations, 
the CLC Kingsmen represent the 
finest in small-college football. 

Bell Works to Establish Soccer Team 

Twenty-five CLC students will 
begin practice September 15, on 
the college practice football field, 
in an effort to establish them- 
selves as an intercollegiate 
soccer power. 

"I feel this year is a sample of 
what can be done in the future. If 
it's successful, we'll stay that 
way. If not, it will take a few 
years before the team can again 
gain support," commented Rolf 
Bell, spokesman and organizer of 
the college's new team. 

The main fear of the club is 
lack of student body support. The 
team is already being supported 
by the many soccer organizations 
in the area. Supporters are 
hoping for a four-field soccer 
center to be constructed on 
college land. Such a center would 
give CLC the biggest soccer 
center in Southern California. 

"Professional teams in the 
United States failed because of 
almost nil support. I guess it 
wasn't in our culture enough," 
explained Bell. "But we're 
getting kids into it, and there are 
already over one hundred youth 
teams in the Conejo Valley." 

The team will start by playing 
on a men's team schedule, and 
will hopefully be worked up to an 
intercollegiate status by next fall. 
"Sure we'll be playing men's 
teams, but we're still 
representing* college. Besides, 
we're planning on playing a 
couple small colleges this year 
just to get the feel of in- 
tercollegiate ball," added Bell. 

"We don't have a coach but 
rather we'll elect a team captain. 
That means we each have to put 
out that much harder. We also 
need people and welcome all 
interested to join us."

crashes through the University of 
Redlands line for a first down.

were not enough, the final score 21-14. 

Intramurals Plan 
Active Season 

As part of the move to make the 
CUB the center for campus ac- 
tivities, the intramural or 
Recreation Activities Program 
has shifted from the supervision 
of the Physical Education 
Department to Don Hossler's 
Campus Activities office with 
Mark Hollis as student director. 
Hossler feels this is a beneficial 
change since there was little 
interest or direct responsibility 
by a faculty or staff member 
under the old system. 

This year the intramurals 
program is an independent 
program with its own sports 
equipment to be used only by 
RAP participants. There will be 
students paid to work with in- 
tramurals, referees will be made 
available to students, and 
Hossler's plans emphasize 
organization in scheduling ac- 

In the past games were often 
scheduled and nothing would 
materialize. This year if a game 
is scheduled, the equipment, 
referees, and supervisors will be 
there. It is Up to the students to 
generate some enthusiasm by 

A variety of activities are being 
planned for semester. The coed 
flag football teams started action 
on September 23 and out of eight 
teams prospects are being picked 
for the CLFL (California Luth- 
eran Football League) "Super 
Bowl" on November 11. Sep- 
tember 28 is the last day for the 
AMS Volleyball Tournament 
sign-ups. If you missed out on 
volleyball, sign-ups are being 
held for the Jogger's Marathon 
on October 20 and the "Busch 
Garden's Badminton Cham- 
pionships" to be held November 
12-19. Sign-ups can be completed 
in CUB, cafeteria, or dorms. 

If any students yearn for the 
unusual in the way of sports, feel 
free to tell Don Hossler or Mark 
Hollis of your ideas. They 
welcome any new sports you may 
want. There has been some talk 
of the possibilities of Whiffel? 
(plastic bats and balls) games 
and a Frisbee golf tournament in 
the spring. 

Open Gym Nights are another 
feature of intramurals. The gym 
will be open on certain nights 
during the week from 8-11 p.m. 
for students' use. There will be an 
assistant, Dane Woll, there to 
issue equipment such as basket- 
balls, volleyballs and nets, and 
badminton rackets. Students 
also have access to most gym- 
nastic equipment. When you 
think your roomate has. reached 
his high tension level, send him 
down to the gym to get it out of his 
system. Everyone is urged to' 

RAP is not only designed for 
CLC's students but CLC's faculty 
as well. There seems to be a need 
for sports in the faculty com- 
munity as seen by numerous 
tennis games among professors 
on campus, so the Faculty Sport 
Night was conceived. The gym 
will be open to faculty and their 
families and will be set up on the 
same principle as Open Gym 
Night. It will be open twice a 
month every second and fourth 
Sunday 7-9:00 p.m. Those who 
took advantage of the first Sport 
Night were Dr. Swenson, Mr. 
Bielke, Dr. Fonseca, Dr. Max- 
well, and Mrs. Abrahamson. It 
has been rumored that Dr. 
Murley of the English Depart- 
ment has challenged Dr. Smith's 
History Department in the sport 
of their choice, but no answer has 
been received from the History 
Department as yet. 

The Year of 
the Saints 


Football players are not nor- 
mally associated with the word 
Saints. In fact, Christianity is 
usually more akin to the higher 
virtues of brotherly love, peace 
and faith, while football is more 
attuned to crushing tackles and 
vicious blocks. 

This seeming incongruity is 
exactly why this year at CLC is 
labeled "The Year of the Saints." 
A football player can be a 
Christian as easily as a sinner 
can be a Saint. We have this on 
very good authority from St. 
Paul, who labeled himself as the 
greatest sinner (I Timothy 1:16), 
but whom most scholars regard 
as the greatest Saint, a man who 
as Saul, used his strength and 
talent for evil and yet as Paul 
fought the good fight as God's 
greatest servant. 

This is a turn-around year for 
CLC. Last season we displayed a 
porous defense, a sputtering 
offense and a spotty kicking 
game. The fact that we were 5-5 
and second in the District was a 
result of some mid-season 
courage and our reputation. 

1973 will be a different year and 
our players will be vastly dif- 
ferent. The offense that was new 
is now seasoned. The defense that 
collapsed has reinforcements 
coming from many directions. 
The kicking game that was so 
inconsistent looks to be a solid 
plus. In addition, new leadership 
and new spirit is bubbling from 
eager players. 

It is probably presumptuous to 
look to a national championship 
as the schedule is enough to cause 
gigantic state universities to look 
with awe and apprehension. CLC 
will play against three teams 
favored to win their conferences 
and three other universities with 
outstanding football programs. 
In many ways a 5-5 season should 
be cause to shout. Never before 
has CLC entered the lists against 
seven universities. 

Our great strength is in the 
courage of our players, like Capt. 
Rod Marinelli. Wounded in 
Vietnam, racked with malaria, 
"too small" for football, 
Marinelli plays the tackle 
position where great size and 
strength are obvious 

requirements. His pride and 
desire make him a prime Ail- 
American candidate at only 215 
pounds and less than 6-0. 

Our QB Kip Downen is 5-7, 
three starting linemen have had 
knee operations that should have 
kept them off the gridiron, our 
kicker is 5-7 and was overlooked 
by all college scouts, our split 
receivers are sophomores with 
practically no varsity ex- 
perience, our defensive backfield 
will have less than 100 minutes of 
varsity experience between 
them. Yet this will be a very fine 
football team. There are some 
bright youngsters, some new 
transfers and some exciting 

In the New Testament, a Saint 
is a repented sinner who believes. 
We all fall short of the mark and 
can do better. By helping each 
other and constantly thinking of 
the other guy, we discover what 
Love is, an action verb. I believe 
you will see a lot of action from 
this year's CLC football team. 

The thrill of victory possesses the 
Kingsmen after their stunning defeat 
of the Humboldt Lumber j acks , 14 - 7 . 
QB Kip Downen led the powerful Kingsmen 
completing 14 of 19 passes. 

Will Wester, takes first place. 


The Kingsmen cross-country 
team trotted to a decisive 34-21 
victory over U.C. Irvine, Sep- 
tember 15, taking the first three 

Don Green, CLC track coach 
said, "I think it potentially the 
greatest team in CLC history. It's 
the best conditioned and has the 
finest attitude." 

The team consists of: Ian 
Cummings; captain; Palomar, 
Ron Palce; Palomar, Will 
Wester; Palomar, Peter Welch; 
Palomar, Steve Blum; Pomona 
High School, Pat Whittington; 
Hawaii; Greg Dinnen; Schurr. 

Six out of the seven team 
members have transferred in 
from other colleges. The four 
members who transferred from 
Palomar finished second in 
junior college championships. 

Shoup Assesses 
Frisco Team 

San Francisco's Golden State 
Gator's, unbeaten in two previous 
games, will host California 
Lutheran College at Cox Stadium 
in San Francisco tomorrow at 
1:00 p.m. 

The Gator's quarterback has 
been called one of the best in the 
school's history. The team led by 
him beat Nevada-Reno (31-28) 
and Cal State Northridge (35-21). 
He completed 26 of 39 for 540 
yards. Against Northridge, he 
threw for 237 yards hitting 11 of 21 
with 2 interceptions. 

Waller will be throwing to a 
sensational receiver, Dan 
Ferrigano. In the backfield 
behind him will be a power-type 
runner Dave Fernandez. This 
game tomorrow, according to 
statistics, will prove to be an 
offensive show-down.

LDC Makes Front Page News 

The following stories have been 
reprinted to give the CLC 
students, faculty, administration, 
and staff an opportunity to 
examine the publicity generated 
by the existence of the National 
Legal Data Center on the Law of 

Obscenity on the CLC campus. 
The ECHO does not wish to 
take a stand regarding the 
center, but we do wish to further 
enlighten the CLC community 
about the center's actual func- 
tioning and relationship to the 

college and about the way in 
which these aspects are being 
interpreted by the media. 

We do not take responsibility

Lutheran College Gets U.S. Fund in Smut Drive 

By William Claiborne, 
raprointod from the 
Washington Post, August 
29, 1973 
A Lutheran college in 
California is receiving 1137,625 in 
federal funds to assist 
prosecutors across the country in 
a crackdown against obscene 
films and literature. 

The project offers suggested 
"trial tactics," provides model 
pleadings and court orders, and 
even supplies expert witnesses to 
testify against defendents. The 
next proposal is to send briefs of 
anti-pornography arguments to 
selected judges. 

In Houston and Colorado 
Springs, the anti-obscenity task 
force has assisted prosecutors in 
cases against the financially 
successful pornographic film, 
"Deep Throat." It has helped 
authorities in Portsmouth, Va., 
write standards that are applied 
to allegedly obscene magazines. 
The federally funded project at 
the California Lutheran College 
in Thousand Oaks, Calif., was 
begun on the recommendation of 
a Jesuit priest, the Rev. Morton 
A. Hill, who helped write a 
scathing dissenting opinion in the 
1970 report of the President's 
Commission on Obscenity and 

Father Hill vehemently op- 
posed the commission's 
majority, which called for the 
repeal of the nation's laws 

against pornography for con- 
senting adults. He walked out of 
one meeting of the commission. 

The California organization — 
called the National Legal Data 
Center on the Law of Obscenity- 
has received assistance from a 
private, an ti -obscenity group in 
New York called Morality in the 
Media, which is headed by 
Father Hill. 

Father Hill is a member of the 
advisory board of the obscenity 
center, which is expected to get 
$200,000 next year under LEAA's 
technical assistance program, 
according to Philip Cohen, a law 
professor who serves as project 

The Lutheran College faculty 
consultant to the obscenity center 
is Homer E. Young, a retired 
special agent of the FBI who 
headed the bureau's anti- 
pornography drive in Southern 
California for 15 years. 

The center's anti-obscenity 
activities are summarized in a 
quarterly report to LEAA, which 
was obtained by The Washington 
Post. They less (sic) include: 

— Writing anti-obscenity or- 
dinances for local municipalities. 

— Providing "model pleadings 
and court orders" to be used in 
obscenity actions, and developing 
"Trial Tactics." 

— Providing expert witnesses 
to testify for the prosecution in 
obscenity trials. 

— Maintaining a "brief 

bank," from which 117 legal 
briefs against obscenity have 
already been sent to local 

— Compiling a prosecutor's 
manual for guiding local district 
attorneys in obscenity cases. 

— Compiling information for 
the Justice Department "con- 
cerning the shady legal tactics 
frequently employed by one of 
the nation's most prominent 
pornography defense attorneys." 

— Conducting anti-obscenity 
conferences across the country, 
at which local prosecutors are 
instructed in trial preparation. 

— Preparing to produce a 
"training film" for local 

— Making presentations about 
censorship and anti-obscenity 
statutes to library associations 
and Friends of Library groups. 

A potentially controversial 
undertaking of the obscenity 
center involves the planned 
mailing of legal briefs to judges 
involved in pornography cases. 

Cohen, the project director, 
raised the question in the 
quarterly report to LEAA, 
saying, "We do not believe that it 
would be appropriate to put 
judicial officers on our full 
mailing list for, let us say, a 
newsletter designed and slanted 
toward prosecutors. 

"However, an argument may 
be advanced that the brief bank 
index is "neutral" in nature, 

since it is merely an index to 
arguments advanced by 
prosecutors and defense counsel 
in other court actions," Cohen 

In a telephone interview from 
Thousand Oaks, Cohen yesterday 
rejected a suggestion that the 
obscenity center was attempting 
to establish a national standard 
for pornography prosecution. 

The Supreme Court last June 
21 paved the way for crackdowns 
on obscene literature and other 
materials by giving the states 
broad new powers. It rejected 
arguments that a national rather 
than local standard should apply 
to determining what is obscene. 

"The defense is already doing 
what we are doing," said Cohen, 
referring to an organization of 
defense attorneys called the First 
Amendment Trial Lawyers' 
Association. The association 
pools case law information and 
exchanges briefs on obscenity 
cases among its members, Cohen 

Ronald W. Sabo, the center's 
research director, said in an 
interview that his group is a 
direct outgrowth of Father Hill's 
minority opinion recom- 
mendation that a national 
clearinghouse of anti-obscenity 
law be developed for the benefit 
of local prosecutors. 

"President Nixon said 'nuts' 
to the majority report, and 
Father Hill suggested to LEAA 

that they give a research grant 
for this kind of thing," Sabo said. 
He said the obscenity center 
received a letter from LEAA last 
week indicating that Justice 
Department officials believe the 
project is useful in the govern- 
ment's crackdown on por- 

An LEAA official yesterday 
said the Lutheran College's 
center is the only such federally 
funded program, and that it has 
applied for a renewal of its grant 
The current grant expires Dec. 

"The purpose of the center is 
the test the hypothesis that local 
prosecutors don't have much 
information in this area," the 
LEAA official said. 

The LEAA spokesman declined 
to comment on the possibility of 
the obscenity center ultimately 
standardizing obscenity prosecu- 
tion. LEAA Administrator 
Donald E. Santarelli was 
traveling abroad and unavailable 
for comment. 

The obscenity center, accord- 
ing to its officials, has 
established "mutually rewarding 
relationships" with the 
prosecutors of a number of cities 
besides Houston, Colorado 
Springs and Portsmouth. They 
include Miami, Boston, Nash- 
ville, San Mateo, Calif., 
Providence, R.I., Philadelphia,

(Star Reporter) 
A lot of crazy thoughts went 
rampaging through the hallways 
of my mind as I drove the Ven- 
tura Freeway back to L.A. from 
Thousand Oaks, where I had just 
visited the California Lutheran 
Center's obscenity center and 
found a church using public 
federal funds for non-public 
research, probably in violation of 
the constitutional church-state 
My thoughts went like this: 
Gee, smog is obscene. Why 
don't they look into that? 

Things like that. Then I flashed 
back to where I'd just been and 
how I'd gotten there. 

The story began a week ago, 
when Daily Pla — oops! — 
Weekly News editor Art Kunkin 
called me into his office. 

'•Clark.' he said, "you're 

"Clark, I've got a hot story for 
you. The California Lutheran 
College has started to run 
something they call the National 
Legal Data Center on the Law of 
Obscenity. It's something that 
will help government prosecutors 
convict the makers of the movies 

you like to see. What do you think 
about that?" 

"Chief," I replied, "I think 
that's obscene!" 

"Right," said Kunkin. "That 
puts it right in your pocket. I'm 
giving this lead to you. Go get the 

Several days later I drove out 
to the campus, a small cluster of 
squat buildings squatting in the 
heart of a suburban community. 

After I parked my car, I 
thought I might get more in- 
formation if I used my X-ray 
vision to peek into the obscenity 
center's dirty files. This, of 
course, necessitated that I 
change into my costume. A pay 
phone booth nearby suddenly 
jumped into view. 

Once inside. I began taking off 
my coat and tie and white shirt, 
but then my arms got stuck 
between the glass panels when 
someone tried to push the closed 
door back open while I was still 

When I escaped from the pay 
phone booth, I went into the 
Center's office, elbowing past the 
voluptuous college co-eds, and 
announced, "I'm interested in 
Obscenity. Who do I talk to'*" 

" 1 don't know," said a swarthy- 
faced middle-aged man standing 
by the desk. "I really don't go to 
college here. I'm a salesman and 
this is my lunch hour." 

Patience was rewarded, 
however. After making a few 
more inquiries, I faced a man 

who looked like Porky Pig with a 
moustache and asked him where 
I could find Obscenity Center 
Research Director Ronald W. 

"That's me," he replied. 

And we began our interview. 

(Editor's note: and this story 
can finally begin, thank God!) 

Operating through the Law 
Enforcement Assistance Ad- 
ministration (LEAA) of the 
Justice Department, anti-sex 
film forces within the Ad- 
ministration have given the 
Church $137,000 (according to the 
Washington Post) for the ser- 
vices they expect to get. The 
Church receives this money 
through its California Lutheran 
College educational facility in 
Thousand Oaks, California. Both 
the Bishop of the South Pacific 
Section of the Pacific Southwest 
synod of the Lutheran Church in 
America — the Church's 
governing bodies — are active 
member of the college's ruling 
board of regents. 

Most of this information, about 
the College and its ties to the 
Church, came from a couple of 
people in the college's Press 
Relations office who didn't give 
me their names. One was the 
director and the other, a lady, 
was his News Director. 

I found the Director of PR dude 
most interesting of all. The top 
man of the college's Obscenity 
Center is a guy named Philip 

Cohen, and when we got around 
to talking about Cohen this dude 
said, "Of course, we have to be 
careful how we refer to the 
Center in the press. Our director, 
Mr Cohen, had an unfortunate 
experience recently. Of course, 
being Jewish. I suppose he's 
more liberal in these mat- 
ters . . . " Then he went on to tell 
me how "all of us Christians must 
stand together" to fight the good 
fight for morality and put down 
pornography. And so on. 

But this was really after my 
interview at the Obscenity 
Center, when I learned — by 
happenstance — that the 
college's Press Relations 
department didn't know I was 
getting an interview from the 

"You really shouldn't have 
gotten that information," the 
Press Relations guy said. Then, 
picking up a college brochure 
obviously designed for 
distribution to faculty personnel, 
he showed me a line that said 
something to the effect that all 
contacts with the press must first 
be cleared through his office, and 
no interviews of any sort are to be 
given without the express ad- 
vance approval and all that kind 
of stuff. 

I guess he expected me to give 
up my notes, but all I could say 
was. "vou really oughta tell 

He agreed. 

At the Obscenity Center itsell I 

had a ball. Research director 
Sabo was a real talkative fellow 
and he didn't seem to realize I 
was really going to print 
everything he told me. 

What he said, as we sipped 
coffee together and made 
deprecating remarks to each 
other about how "boring" dirty 
films really are, was that the 
college gets all this money from 
the Government and then gives it 
to its own "National Legal Data 
Center on the Law of Obscenity." 
which is staffed by California 
Lutheran College faculty 
members. One of them. Homer 
Young, "headed up the porno 
division of the FBI" during 15 of 
his 30 years with them," Sabo 
told me. 

Sabo also said his Obscenity 
Center, which opened its doors 
seven months ago, exists for the 
sole purpose of assisting federal, 
state and local government 
prosecutors in their courtroom 
efforts against films the 
government considers por- 

"What we do, said Sabo, "is 
supply prosecutors around the 
country with pre-trail legal 
research we carry out for them at 
their request." 

"How much do you charge for 
this? I asked. 

"Nothing," said Sabo, "It's 

'Would you do this for defense 
lawyers, as well 9 ''

His image is in us all and we

Let us celebrate woman! 
Celebrate the word I choose over 
consider, contemplate, or ob- 
serve. Celebrate is whole enough 
to embrace the others and go 
beyond to something adequate 
for persons. 

My personal celebration of 
woman must by the gift and 
grace of it begin with my spouse. 
All my celebration of person, and 
life, begins with her. No 
stereotype, her! to consider, or 
observe. She is flesh and blood, 
soul. With her, as person other 
than me, I have formed the 
communion which is our life. You 
cannot know me, understand me, 
unless you know and understand 

I celebrate her in her other- 
ness. She is other than I. She is 
her own I. Hurrah for that! I 
confess the mystery of it. I affirm 

Celebrating Woman 


the independence of it. I grow and 
am challenged bv the expression 
of it. There is contradiction, 
confusion, and conflict but from 
our otherness comes the material 
and spirit of our union. God 
blesses it. We celebrate it. 

I feel the intensity of the time. 
It is felt in the range of the 
response to be evoked by the 
linking of words like woman, 
women, female and identity, 
power, and liberation. I do not 
know where the drift and 
movement of it tends. I trust the 
forces of liberation. It is often 
strident. Yes! Comic. Yes! 
Uncomfortable, awkward YES! 
But where the spirit of liberation 
is true there is liberation for me. 
It is the movement and substance 
of the Gospel itself. 

In my celebration I expect to 
grow and learn, and puzzle and 
laugh and think and open myself 
to a thanksgiving for woman 
which begins with my spouse and 
touches every person.

"No," said Sabo, "only for 
district attorneys and attorneys- 
general; for law enforcement 
offices. The lawyers don't need 
our help. Stanley Fleischman (a 
noted Hollywood defense at- 
torney for movies accused of 
being too erotic) isn't exactly 
starving, you know." 

"But you're funded by public 
monies," I pointed out "Doesn't 
this — " 

But Sabo cut me off. "Look," 
he said, "they have "their own 
organizations, like the First 
Amendment Trial Lawyers 

"And they do research — " I 

"Sure," Sabo said. "They 
exchange all those court rulings 
and new statutes all the time. 
They don't need our help, even if 
we were willing to give it to 

What else does the Obscenity 
Center do, beside use public 
funds for research the public 
can't get? 

"Well," bragged Sabo, "we're 
also compiling a list of 'expert 
witnesses' ..." — people from 
the fields of English, Art, 
Journalism, and Psychology who 
"would be willing to testify on the 
government's behalf every time 
there was a film the government 
wanted to go after. 

Sabo said the list will include 
not only the name, field of 
specialization and location of 
willing witnesses, but, as well, 
where they are and aren't willing 
to travel in any given case, and, 
most importantly of all, "how 
much they'll charge for 

There is another list the Center 
is working on, too, Sabo told me 
— one that will have the name of 
expert witnesses used by defense 
attorneys as well and one that, 
like the first list, will also be 
made available to police forces 
around the country for their files. 

And that about wrapped it up. 
It was then that I went over to the 
college's Press Relations office to 
see if I could find a definite tie 
between this college and the 
Lutheran Church. The thing 
running through my mind was 
that, if I could, then this whole 
thing could be cited as a breach of 
the Constitutional doctrine of 
"Separation of Church and 
State," as enunciated in the First 

"One thing you must not do," 
the press relations dude told me. 

"and that is make contact with 
the ACLU (American Civil 
Liberties Union) about us. They 
have a hate list over there, and 
we're (chuckle) on it." 

So the first thing I did when I 
got back to L.A. was — call the 

Ramona Ripston, executive 
director, was the person I wound 
up speaking with. She said there 
was no hate list in existence, but 
that the ACLU was aware of the 
college's pro-censorship project 
and that it has been con- 
templating ways they could take 
legal action against it. 

"Have you thought about 
this?" I asked. And then I told her 
everything they told me. 

Miss Ripston was delighted. 
She said the ACLU had been 
considering going after the 
Obscentiy Center on the grounds 
that its use of public monies for 
research that would not be made 
available to the public con- 
stituted a violation of "due 
process" law. "But now," she 
said, in reference to the Church- 
and-state tie I had found, "we can 
think about going after them in 
violations of the First Amend- 
ment. This is marvelous! I'm 
going to call the chairman of our 
subcommittee that's been 
studying this and tell him about it 
right away." 


Dr. Ledbetter has called for 
more faculty comments. Great! 
Sounds like a call to openness, 
frankness, honesty. Many of us 
have fought in the past against 
any paternalistic policies on the 
part of the administration, for 
example any tendency to look 
over the shoulders of faculty 
members to see whether they are 
faithful in church attendance, 
any tendency to overload the 
teaching staff with Lutherans of 
one synod, Christians of one 
denomination, or exclusively 
Christians, for that matter. We 
all know that occupying a pew no 
more guarantees orthodox or 
inspired teaching or even fair 

treatment of positions other than 
our own, than backing off from 
church membership proves 
maturity and scholarship and 

But it does seem that when 
columns like this one challenge 
us to constructive interaction, 
any faculty member concerned 
beyond the never-ending need to 
protect rights and privileges will 
rise to the challenge. Such con- 
structive challenges for frank 
exchange and stimulation are 
happily increasing in recent 
years: the exciting Monday 
morning Christian Conversations

Dogs on Campus 

California Lutheran College is 
i a very interesting place. It is 
good to live here. It is like home 
in many ways; and one of those 
ways is a sense of companionship 
— companionship with people, 
with animals, in short, with 
nature. It is this sense of oneness 
with nature that is unique. The 
students living in dorms cannot 
have animals. That is too bad, 
though there are no doubt good 
reasons. But students living in 
Kramer or the language homes 
who may have a dog or cat 
"around the patio" are to be 
envied, congratulated, and en- 

When prospective students see 

dogs playing on the lawns they 

are pleasantly surprised and 

impressed. They see Cal- 

1 Lutheran as a humane institution 

i that realizes the need of such 

companionship. And they are 

'right. The dogs and cats (while 

) perhaps belonging more or less to 

I one owner) are our pets. We 

watch them. We enjoy them 

being here. After all, students are

This year, we hope that you, the 
students, will take advantage of 
the funds available in the Con- 
cert/Lecture Commission. You 
can do this by becoming aware of 
the different events that you can 
sponsor. This short note will, 
hopefully, give you some ideas. 

First, let's begin by explaining 
just what the Concert /Lecture 
Commission is responsible for. 
We are in charge of the lecturers 
that appear on campus. We 
arrange the bookings and con- 
tracts for these people and for the 
films that appear. In the way of 
concerts, we work hand in hand 
with the Music Department in 
arranging the wide variety of 
musical entertainment that is 
scheduled. These, in a nutshell, 
are the responsibilities of the 

We would like to branch out and 
that brings me to the reason for 
this letter. Through the com- 
mission we hope to bring some of 

the events that also happen off- 
campus. We are fortunate that 
we live so close to Los Angeles in 
that it is quite possible for us to 
attend the theater, catch a 
concert (rock or classical), or 
whatever. By using the Con- 
cert/Lecture Commission we can 
get tickets at very good prices, 
usually a 50 per cent discount, 
and make the necessary 
arrangements for transportation. 
To my knowledge, this has never 
taken place before, but then we 
have never had this opportunity 
before. Hopefully, if this idea 
strikes your fancy you'll let me or 
one of my commission members 
know. We would like to be able to 
say that we are here to serve you 
but unless we know about your 
ideas we can't. 

Thank Uening,

we don't want to eliminate them 
either. Let the students with patio 
and/or yards own the dogs and 
cats. We all benefit from having 
them around. They help to 
remind us of our commonality 
with the whole world of things, of 
plants and stones, with dirt and 
sagebrush, and with the animals 
. . . and with each other. 
Walt Whitman said it best: 

I think I could turn and live 
with animals, they are so placid 
and self-contained, 

I stand and look at them long 
and long. 

They do not sweat and whine 
about their condition, 

They do not lie awake in the 
dark and weep for their sins, 

They do not make me sick 
discussing their duty to God, 

Not one is dissatisfied, not 
one is demented with the mania 
of owning things, 

Not one kneels to another, 
nor to his kind that lived 
thousands of years ago, 

Not one is respectable or 
unhappy over the whole earth. 

So they show their relations 
to me and I accept them, 

They bring me tokens of 
myself, they evince them plainly 
in their possession.

of Myself"

San Francisco. 

In Madison, Mayor William 
Dyke, who vigorously backed an 
anti-pornographic task force, 
was defeated by a student- 
supported liberal candidate, who, 
according to Cohen, promised "to 
abolish obscenity prosecution." 

San Francisco has "neither the 
resources nor the motivation to 
pursue obscenity prosecutions," 
according to Cohen, who before 
joining the California Lutheran 
College was an assistant U.S. 
attorney in Florida. 

According to a copy of the 
minutes of the obscenity center's 
advisory board meeting of March 
3, Morality in Media, of New 
York City, provided the center 
with photo-copies of obscenity 
trial transcripts for use in 
developing trial tactics and was 
seeking $2,000 from the California 

In an interview, Cohen stressed 
that the obscenity center was 
attempting to dissociate itself 
from any private anti- 
pornography group. He said 
Father Hill occasionally attended 
advisory board meetings but that 
he has not attempted to impose 
Morality in Media policies on the 

Christian action groups springing 
up from the New Earth, the 
challenging new plays with which 
the drama department is 
delighting us, the adventurous 
musical experiments of choir and

of student concerns and hurts in 
speech classes — on and on, 
without forseeable limit. Why 

Shaw says somewhere that the 
true joy in life is the "being used 
for a purpose recognized by 
yourself as a mighty one; the

you are thrown on the scrap

instead of a feverish selfish little 
clod of ailments and grievances 
complaining that the world will 
not devote itself to making you 
happy." Orthodox he wasn't, but 
the quotation unveils the heart of 
the man as more than spirited. 
He was religious, yes spiritual, 
and if he had to taunt and 
threaten the more cozily 
domesticated of us to arouse us to 
greatness of soul, he obviously 
thrived offending as well as 
amusing. I have always thought 
the truth Christ talked about as

We seem to need 

on-going, open- 

ended dialogue. 

One of my concerns at the 
moment is the dreary cleanness 
of the walls of yet another of our 
buildings, the new Nygreen Hall. 
It is obvious the art people delight 
in bringing beauty and ex- 
citement to our campus through 
exhibits and decorative efforts 
again and again often at their 
own expense. So why do we let a 
day go by without assisting them 
in surrounding ourselves with 
murals, paintings, sculpture, 
fountains — something, 
anything! Either we believe or 
we do not that art and music and 
dance permeate our being far 
beyond the conscious mind. 

The greens of Kingsman Park 
are refreshing — a big thank you 
to those responsible. Livable 
dorms and extended open house 
make for more learning — a big 
thank you to those responsible. 
And now we need art in Nygreen, 
perhaps a campaign (prizes?) to 
provide food for the eye and the 
spirit before, after, and yes, 
during class. Let it be master- 
pieces, student experimental 
pieces, faculty unsuspected 
drawings buried in some closet, 
the whole gamit. 

The greatest concern remains 
the same: CLC survival as an 
authentic educational ex- 
perience. Experts predict the 
majority of non -tax-supported 
institutions will close within ten 
years. And many will not be 
missed. Nor will we be missed, if 
we do not have more, many 
more, strictly academic 
scholarships that lead not only to 
cracking the big graduate 
scholarship like Danforth and 
Ful bright and Woodrow Wilson, 
but to enriching the classroom 
levels of discussion right now. 

It is not a matter of eggheads 
against grunts. It is a matter of 
sheer survival. The board ol 
regents knows it, the faculty 
knows it, the students know it, 
and we are all getting excited by 
fresh winds that seem to be in 
fact blowing hard from the new 
administrative team too in this 
same direction. Great! 




ASB Government- Explained? 

September 28, 1973 

Recent discussions have 
revealed a startling insight into 
the collective mind of the student 
body. It seems, shock of shocks, 
that there are students, yea even 
unto great numbers, who do not 
understand what the student 
body does. It is even rumored 
that there exists in some dark 
corners of Mountclef, students 
which are not even aware of the 
student government's existence! 
Fie upon such unlightened 
darkness!! Let it herein be 
known, and never again be 
denied by mortal breath of man, 
that there is an associated 
student body government! The 
remaining questions now are: 
What does it do? When does it do 
it? Who does it? Which group 
does what? And finally, whatever 
for? Since these questions seem 
to pervade the campus, the 
A.S.B. has decided to reveal their 
divine insight through the 
medium of the ECHO. Hopefully 
this may also clear up a little 
confusion which the A.S.B. seems 
to have itself. 

To begin with, if you are a ful- 
time student here at the college 
you are a member of the 
associated student body. You 
cannot resign. Like most 
societies, you cannot exist within 
the community without "being" 
the community. In other words, 
whether you like it or not, and in 
whatever form, you are involved, 
active and responsible. 

As a student you are 
represented, as an individual and 
as a group, by a student body 
government. Why, you may ask, 
do we need this? Obviously 
enough, so that those of us who 
don't do homework have 
something to busy ourselves 
with. As well as the fact that if the 
busybodies didn't "busy" there 
would be no organized social 
functions, activities, clubs or 
other assorted happenings. 
Whether this lack would be good 
or bad is a matter of opinion. If; 
however, the students wish to 
seriously explore their own in- 
sights, group interaction and 
survival as an active community, 
student government serves as a 
ready vehicle for self- 

The form which this student 
government takes could loosely 
be called "democratic." Actually 
it's not, but the word "republic" 
doesn't sit too well in this culture. 
The student body government 
consists of an executive branch, 
legislative branch and a judicial 
branch. The structure of each of ' 
these different branches, based 
on the newly revised constitution, 
are outlined below. 

The executive branch is called 
the Executive Cabinet. Its pur- 
pose is to administrate legislation 
passed by the student Senate. The 
Cabinet consists of the school 
president, vice-president, 
secretary, treasurer, the 
Associated Mens Student's 
president, the president of the 
Associated Womens Students, 
and the Commissioners. Most of 
these positions are self-evident in 
their functions. The positions 
which students seem least to 
understand is that of the Com- 

missioners. The Commissioners 
are elected student represen- 
tatives which are responsible for 
supervising, organizing, 
budgeting, and representing 
different areas of student life. 
The commissions represent the 
following areas: Athletic /Pep, 
Concert /Lecture, Religious 
Activities and Service, 
Social /Publicity, and Student 
Publications. Further ex- 
planations of all student body 
positions can be carried on in 
more detail at a later date. 

The Legislative branch of 
student government is called the 
Student Senate. Its power and 
purpose is to enact legislation. It 
has the power to review, change, 
and adopt the A.S.B. budget. By 
the way, we do have a budget for 
student government and you paid 
for it! The individual members of 
the Senate are to represent the 
ideas, views, and interests of the 
student body. The members of 
the Senate are also the officers of 
each of the classes. That is to say, 

that those individuals which you 
elect to serve as class officers are 
also your representatives in the 
Senate. This information, quite 
hopefully, should have you now 
thoroughly confused. 

The Judicial branch is quaintly 
called the A.S.B. Judiciary 
Council. Its responsibility is, at 
this time, to review disciplinary 
matters. It is made up of the 
Standards Committees of the 
A.M.S. and the A.W.S. There is 
the possibility that the respon- 
sibilities of this branch may 
change. How, when, and if, are 
yet to be seen. 

There is considerably more 
red-tape, confusion, and surprize 
involved in A.S.B. It is more than 
possible that some individuals 
will differ with the above 
definitions of student govern- 
ment. Great! That's what the 
whole mess is about. Hopefully 
we've shared enough of our 
"enlightened insights" for the 
time being. Take care, and 
please, survive. 


Almost overnight, CLC is 
transformed into a summer 
camp; a camp for the Cowboys, 
for basketball players, for 
wrestlers, for cheerleaders, and 
for miniature quarterbacks. This 
transformation begins in late 
June, and continues throughout 
the entire summer, hardly 
breaking for more than a day. 
And this "Camp Cal Lu" as it 
has been dubbed comes complete 
with the screaming homesick 
kids, the nervous staff, the 
overgrown apes (Cowboys) 
eating their way to happiness, the 
wrestlers and all their sweat 
dripping down the cafeteria 

Camp Cal Lu has the typical 
camp activities, such as tennis, 
and swimming, if you are lucky 
enough to find a place to enjoy 
them. The tennis courts are 
constantly filled with little 
basketballers, from morning 
until dusk; and the pool has 
barely enough water in it for 
one's big toe. And then of course, 
the cheerleaders with their pep 
and vitality begin to cheer, sing 
and chant from sun up to sore 
throats. "Camp Cal Lu" is 
exactly what the doctor ordered 
for a nervous breakdown. 

I am not knocking any of these 
camps. The Cowboys are a fine 
group of players; the basket- 
ballers, the wrestlers, the 
cheerleaders and the quar- 
terbacks, they all are human, and 
have a lot of fun at Cal Lu. But, 
what I do resent, is that CLC is 
completely taken away from 
students during the summer. I 
spent the entire summer stuck in 
McAfee, while thousands of kids, 
players, and the like were housed 
in Beta, Alpha and Mountclef 
dorms. Meals for the summer 
students and workers were 
scheduled at early hours, so that 
the camps may be fed according 

Camp Cal Lu 

to their own private schedules. I 
finally gave up on the pool. It was 
just too crowded with kids, all 
screaming and yelling, as if it 
was theirs. But, I feel Cal Lu is 
MY home, I love CLC with a 
passion, but this summer was 
enough to make me think twice, if 
not three times. And then the 
tennis courts were always filled; 
by guys playing BASKETBALL! 
At one point, housing ran short, 
and the kids from the quar- 
terback camp were housed in 
McAfee apts! I resented this 
whole summer, as I feel it was an 
invasion on MY privacy. It was 
almost impossible to walk, or to 
ride around campus, without 
hitting someone, or without being 
hit. There was indeed, a total 
state of confusion at Camp Cal 

I have been a student at CLC 
for the last 3 l /2 years, but never 
had the chance to observe a 
Thousand Jokes summer to full 
capacity. Cal Lu's students are 
cheated in the summer, their 
rights are almost gone, and no 
one has a choice except to "live 
and let die." I found it a hassle to 
get to lunch and dinner early, in 
order to beat the rush of the 
camps ; and the pool — kids, kids^ 
and more kids, running jumping, 
playing, totally inconsiderate of 
anyone's rights, or feelings. 

Thank God I won't be back next 
summer. I can't tolerate Camp 
Cal Lu, and I don't want to. CLC 
IS transformed into a summer 
camp overnight. So, my dear 
Frosh, and other newcomers to 
Cal Lu, let this be a warning. 
Enjoy this year enjoy and live the 
quiet nights, the star-filled skies, 
the beauty of our campus, the 
gentle rolling hills, and the peace 
and serenity, because IF you are 
spending your next summer at 
Camp Cal Lu, things will be quite 
different ! 


^Evidently . . . 

The Streets of CLC 
are no Longer Safe 


It used to be that a person could walk the streets of CLC at any 
time of the day or night with a relatively great degree of safety. 
Evidently, this is no longer true. 

The campus is plagued with reports that lone women have been 
accosted, and that several threats have been issued to different 
members of the student body. Any girl in her right mind who hasn't 
finished her Karate course is beginning to think twice about leaving 
her room after dark. 

Part of the reason for the growing epidemic of paranoia is the 
fact that this campus is incredibly dark at night. True, almost all 
the existing light futures are in working condition ( thanks to Mr. 
Buchanan, Mr. Pantaz and Mr. Miller), but there are several areas 
on campus where there are no light fixtures at all. 

Two areas in particular concern me. The first is the area be- 
tween the Bam and Regents Court. The pathway should be heavily 
traveled at night, since the Barn is open until midnight This is one 
of the darkest areas on campus, however. Another place 
desperately needing lights is Kingsmen Park. One need only walk 
this path once after dark to understand what I mean — not only 
could an assailant hide there easily, but the path itself is so ob- 
scured in shadows that a twisted ankle is almost always the result 
of a late night stroll through the park. 

Another way of preventing both the paranoia and the actual 
occurrences from happening would be to reassess and possibly 
tighten the night guard system. Although I'm sure that the present 
night guard does his job as it has been defined quite well, I think 
that perhaps the administration might take a closer look at exactly 
what they feel his position should be. I think we would all feel safer 
if we knew that Casey (or his assistant) were just a little bit closer 
when we needed them. 

Until the rumors (or even the truths) die down or the ad- 
ministration does something, we're just going to have to be 
especially wary at night while walking the CLC campus. The major 
question to ask should be why should we have to be? 


In Retrospect 

Considering this is the first 
column I have written for the 
ECHO this year, I feel it only 
fitting to look back a little. 

First of all this is my second 
year as a part of the ECHO staff, 
and all of you who have read and 
enjoyed/despised my column 
know which bag I usually come 
out of. Today although I'm 
primarily concerned with the 
seniors themselves being able to 
look back "in retrospect" over 
the past three years as being a 
time of change — for the better. A 
time of change in the sense that 
your ideas, ideals, philosophy, 
and lifestyle even have all been 
altered by the mind-expanding 
experience trip called college. 

I am sure many of you can 
remember the first day you 
walked on campus as a "frosh," 
with every person bringing with 
them their own preconceptions 
about everyone. Everything. Pot 
is addictive, Jews are crazy, 
Mexicans are lazy, Blacks are 
stupid, the flag is sacred, Nixon's 
the one, no premarital sex, all 
professor's should give finals . . . 
with liberty and justice for all. 
Bulltwinky! All of these things 
are nothing more than precon- 
ceptions based on assumptions 
that one has been told by 
someone else. If college is going 
to stand for anything at all, it 

should stand for an institution of 
higher learning dedicated to 
thrashing out the truth from 
preconceptions and hollow 

As most of you know, and I will 
repeat it, UJIMA is a Swahili 
word for "collective effort." The 
collective effort that we all 
should have learned down 
through the three years is to work 
together to get the job done. The 
job — changing the world. And 
not just talking about it but 
starting here in Amerika, 
California, Ventura County, 
Conejo Valley, Thousand Oaks. 
Because, my friends, if we don't 
change it now with the power we 
will soon have, I'm afraid it won't 
happen at all. 

To look back and say others 
have tried and failed is futile; to 
look forward and say even though 
others have failed I will try is 

In conclusion I would like to say 
that I speak only "in retrospect" 
in hopes that we might see from 
whence we came and thereby 
find our place in the cosmic slot 
— the future knot — the world of 
our dreams or — the dreams of 
our world?

Bielke Boasts 6 
NCCC Titles 


Donald P. Bielke has been 
named as assistant professor of 
physical education and head 
basketball coach at California 
Lutheran College. Bielke comes 
to CLC from Concordia Junior 
College in Oakland where he 
spent the past sixteen years as 
head coach. 

He replaces Bob Pitman, who 
resigned following last season's 
9-21 record. 

Bielke, a native of St. Paul, 
Minn., received his B.S. from 
Valparaiso University in Indiana 
in 1954 and his M.S. in 1967 from 
San Francisco State. 

Bielke has had an honorable 
career in sports. In his senior 
year at Valparaiso he was named 
most valuable player, and he 
went on to play professional 
basketball for the now Detroit 

In 1957, Bielke moved to 
Oakland and took over the junior 
college and high school programs 
at the Concordia complex. In his 
sixteen years in the Bay Area, his 
teams won over 450 of the 800 
games played. 

He was the founder of the 
Northern California Christian 
College Conference in 1959 and, 
despite the fact that Concordia 
was the only two year school in 
the conference, his clubs won six 
NCCCC titles outright and shared 
in three others in fourteen years. 

Bielke left his position as head 
coach at Concordia when the 
school closed due to low 

When questioned about CLC 
and his hopes for the team his 
answers were very positive. He 
feels that CLC as a school is one 
of the best he has been at, and 
that the students themselves 
have a good attitude. 

Concerning the team, his 
feelings can be classified as 
hopeful at this time. While only 
hoping for a .500 season he feels 
that a strong young team is in the 

Dr. Mark A. Mathews, CLC's 
president, said of Bielke, "We 
look forward to his leadership in 
heading up the basketball 
program and we know that he 
will make an excellent con- 
tribution to the Physical 
Education Department and the 
student body in general. Mr. 
Bielke represents those qualities 
of Christian education which 
make California Lutheran 
College unique."

Last winter, a few heads began 
to turn in the direction of a new 
group named Champion. The 
group was acclaimed in May as 
the top rock band in Southern 
California by the committee 
selecting performers for the 
Newport Jazz Festival and the 
tea industry's national talent 

Transcending the traditfon of 
shooting top side Champion went 
back to the drawing boards — all 

All smiles except the culture is 
a desert forcing down the public 
ear the arid sounds of the media's 
wasteland. This freeze on music 
is supported by expensive ticket 
prices and censorship of new 
music in the boogie bar leaving 
our people without a chance to 
hear new music. 

CLC has the solution for this 
drought — Champion. This Oct. 
16, at 10: 10 AM and at 7 : 30 PM in 
the gym is your chance to be 
fulfilled musically — Champion 
is coming in concert.

Mae West Appears 
at CLC Tonight 

Mae West, super sex star of the 
20th century, will be making her 
only appearance of 1973 Friday, 
October 12, in the CLC gym- 

Ms. West, known for her well 
written screenplays has 
produced such works as She Done 
Him Wrong, I'm No Angel, 
Catherine Was Great, and Sex, 
the latter for which she was 
arrested on an obscenity charge 
in 1929. She spent 10 days in jail. 

She has also written a best- 
selling book called Goodness Had 
Nothing To Do With It and has 
recorded two rock albums. She is 
also credited for the discovery of 
the famed screen actor Cary 

"Come up and see me 
sometime" is the famous phrase 
coined from the movie I'm No 
Angel, which will be shown at 
6.00 p.m. on Friday, October 12. 
After the film Ms. West will 
receive awards from the AMS, 
AWS, and the ASB. 

A private reception is being 
held for Ms. West in Nygreen Hall 
and those attending will be 
members of the faculty, ad- 
ministration, and community 

Admission for the film will be 
50 cents for CLC and Moorpark 
students and $2.00 for the general

CLC Purchases Computer 

Take a faculty member to lunch like 
this student did. 

Parent's Day Set 
for Tomorrow 

CLC will soon be receiving a 
new computer which offers 
unique advantages to computer 
science, mathematics, and 
business students. The computer, 
which arrived October 6, has a 
cathode ray tube display that 
allows the program to be printed 
on a screen resembling a TV set 

The distinction between a 
computer and a calculator is very 
slight, and this new computer is 
actually closer to a programable 
calculator than a computer. 

A true computer could work 
any language without changing 
hardware by "software" internal 
instruction. The mini-computer, 
though, operates in only one 
language (BASIC) which is built 
into the hardware of the machine. 
It will be more efficient and 

easier to use in BASIC than a 
regular computer in BASIC. 

The computer has a single key 
stroke feature which will give a 
basic command instead of the 
usual method of typing out in- 
dividual characters. There is one 
key for "Print," "Let," and other 
BASIC commands. 

Another feature of the com- 
puter is the magnetic tape 
cassette memory which utilizes 
mini-cassettes. These cassettes 
cost about eight dollars and are 
slightly different than those used 
by cassette recorders. The tapes 
can store as many as fifteen to 
twenty typical programs. 

The bookstore may stock these 
cassettes later and students in 
some classes, such as Business 
Statistics, could use them to store 
a semester classes' programs.

For parents who may have lost 
contact with their offspring since 
the opening of fall semester, 
California Lutheran College is 
sponsoring its annual Parents' 
Day on Saturday, October 13. 

Not only will parents have the 
opportunity for direct con- 
frontation, but there will be a 
special Faculty Forum, open 
house in the dormitories, and the 
chance to see the Kingsmen- 
Claremont Mudd football contest 
at 2 p.m. on Mt. Clef field. 

Providing some comic relief 
during the half time will be the 
yearly tussle between the CLC 
faculty and the Community 
Leaders which is loosely termed 
a football game. Dixon's 
Demons, coached by Jack 
Meaney, will be pitted against 
Mathews MoDDets. engineered by 

Jon Olson. Community Leaders 
will enjoy a picnic in Kingsmen 
Park at noon before the big fray. 

In the evening parents who 
desire may attend the student r . , ,- , , , 

drama production "A Streetcar jj DUChanan tleCted 10 NdtlOnal UOmmittee ;; 
Named Desire" directed by Dr. * 
Richard Adams, Chairman of the 
Drama Department. The play 
will star two veterans of the CLC 
stage, Barry Ybarra as the 
earthy young brother-in-law and 
June Drueding, as Blanche 
Dubois, the fading Southern 
belle, in Tennessee Williams' 
powerful drama about reality 
and illusion which takes place in 
the French quarter in New 

Arrangements for Parents' 
Day are under the direction of Al 
Kempfert, Director of Alumni 
and Parent Relations. 

Family Planning 
Seminar Set 

A seminar based on family 
financial planning will be held at 
California Lutheran College on 
October 17, 24, and November 7 
and 14. 

The seminar will be co- 
sponsored by the CLC Com- 
munity Relations Department 
and the Conejo Valley Chamber 
of Commerce. Sessions will be 
held in N-l of Nygreen Memorial 
Hall from 7:30 - 9 p.m. 

The sessions will be free to the 
public. According to George 
Engdahl, Director of Community- 
Relations, the aim of the seminar 
is to assist people in the basic 
elements of sound family 
financial planning. 

"We have assembled 
professionals to talk about their 
particular field without bias and 
without trying to sell a special 
area of investment but strictly 
from an educational standpoint," 
Engdahl said. 

Dr. Mark A. Mathews, 
President of CLC, will introduce 
the series and speak briefly on 
"Why Family Financial Plan- 
ning?" Before assuming the 
Presidency at CLC, Dr. Mathews 
spent 13 years in the classroom 
teaching in the field of business 
and economics and has received 
three degrees in the area of 
economics and management. 

Dr. Bart Sorge, Chairman of 
the Economics and Management 
Department, will outline the 
various aspects of the four 
sessions for participants. Dr. 
Sorge is the former Chairman of 
the Department of Finance and 
Business Economics of the 
Graduate School of Business 

Administration at USC. 

Featured speakers for the first 
session which will be based on the 
Insurance Aspects of Good 
Family Planning will be Bernerd 
Benesch, C.L.U., District 
Manager Equitable Life 
Assurance Society, and Cy 
Johnson, President of Cy Johnson 
and Associates. 

Benesch is a graduate of UCLA 
where he received a B.S. degree 
in chemistry in 1948. He has been 
in the insurance business since 
1966 and became a Certified Life 
Underwriter in 1969. He is the 
Vice President of the Ventura 
County Branch Life Un- 
derwriters Association. He is the 
recipient of numerous N.A.L.U. 
awards for outstanding per-

choice or the Mystery Spur. 

German Film to be Shown 

The German film "Hokuspokus" complete with English subtitles 
will be shown at California Lutheran College on Tuesday, October 
16, at 7 p.m. in Nygreen Hall. 

The film is adapted from a comedy by Curt Goetz. Agda, the 
attractive wife and unsuccessful painter, is accused of her 
husband's murder and heavily incriminated with circumstantial 
evidence. Her trial provides a surprising as well as happy ending. 

The movie stars Heinz Riikmann and Liselotte Pulver. 

There is no charge for the film and all students of German and 
other interested persons are invited to* attend. 


A card-input system will be 
added to the computer which 
allows a student to write a 
program at his desk by using 
pencil-marked cards to feed the 
program instruction. Dr. Nichols 
of the Computer Science 
Department hopes to later attach 
a teletype system to the com- 
puter for a written copy of 
programs when the company 
manufactures all the hardware 
necessary to implement the 

Last year the computer 
department had two terminals 
for its use which were leased and 
connected to Claremont College's 
system. By leasing only one 
terminal this year, the cost of the 
new computer will be paid for in 
one year. 

The mini-computer is a self- 
contained unit with all the 
electrical and power units at 
CLC, giving students a greater 
opportunity to observe more of 
the operations of a computer, and 
allowing, possibly, for the 
computer to become portable and 
brought into mathematics 

Since the computer is a smaller 
unit, it will not do the larger 
programs, but will do fine for 
most computer purposes here. 
The true computer will also be 
retained for bigger programs. 

Rusher Speaks 

William A. Rusher, publisher of 
the National Review and star of 
NET-TV's much talked about 
program "The Advocates" will 
speak at California Lutheran 
College on Wednesday, October 
24, at 8:15p.m. in the auditorium. 

A noted conservative, Rusher 
has served as associate counsel 
to the Senate Internal Security 
Subcommittee during the period 
when the subcommittee was 
engaged in some of its most 
dramatic and controversial in- 

Rusher will speak on "The 
Nature and Limits of Dissent." 

He has just recently published 
another book "Amnesty?". 
Previously he wrote "Special 
Counsel" which was based on his 
experiences as special counsel 
both in New York and in 

The National Review is 
America's leading journal of 
conservative opinion, and Rusher 
not only handles all of its business 
affairs, but also sits in the 
editorial conferences as well. 

A native of Chicago, he 
received most of his early 
education in New York State. He 
graduated from Princeton's 
School of Public and In- 
ternational Affairs at the age of 
20, served three years with the 
Air Force and was discharged 
with the rank of captain in 1946. 
Two years later he graduated 
from Harvard Law School and 
entered a large Wall Street firm, 
specializing in litigation. In 1955, 
he left his firm to become special 
counsel to the New York Senate 
and the following year he lent his 
talents to the U.S. Senate's in- 
vestigation of domestic com- 

Provocative, pertinent, witty 
and urbane he has become a 
familiar figure on radio and TV 
and was hailed by Variety for his 
role on the 'Advocates' 
. . "Rusher prowls around the 
subject at hand with all the grace 
and skill of a stalking tiger." 

Tickets for Rusher's speech 
will be $2 per person for the 
general public and free to CLC 
and Moorpark students with 
identification cards.

Steepee Comments on 

Politics and the Media 


The statement that Southern 
California has something for 
everybody seems to hold true for 
Jonathan Steepee. As a political 
science professor he has found 
what he wants at California 
Lutheran College. What he wants 
is to be involved and active, so 
naturally Steepee appears to be 
in perpetual motion. 

California seems a long way off 
from Webster, New York, a one 
stoplight town where he was 
raised and attended Webster 
Central High School. Later, at the 
University of Rochester he 
majored in history. After 
receiving his degree he taught 
elementary school, was in the 
Army for two years and con- 
tinued teaching until 1962. 

He then quit teaching to start 
work on his Master's degree. 
Steepee earned his Master's 
degree in Education from New 
York State University and 
another in Political Science at the 
New School for Social Research. 

Steepee began teaching again 
at the New York Institute of 
Technology, both at the Long 
Island and Manhattan campuses, 
which both had huge campuses 
and classes. 

When asked about the com- 
parison between a large school 
like NYIT and CLC, Steepee says 
there is none. He says the student 
quality, both with respect to 
academics and to courtesy is 
better at CLC. Students write - 
better and read more here. 

In 1964 Steepee completed his 
exams and courses for his Ph.D 
at the New School for Social 
Research, 'The university in 
exile," founded and run by 
German Jews. During this period 
he worked at the City Desk of 
United Press International (UPI) 
and discovered that news and 
media are manufactured. 

This assumption led to his 
hobby. A one time subscriber to 
thirty newspapers, he tried to 
compare them and see how each 
manufactured the news. He found 
that "the only difference between 
the Daily News (New York) and 
the New York Times is the way 
they fold them." Now he says he 
can only handle six papers, but 
those six reinforce his belief. 

This interest in the 
manipulated media naturally led 
him to make conclusions con- 
cerning politics and the media. 
He thinks parties, through the 
media, use the bandwagon 
technique. This is where papers 
back the candidate that ad- 
vertisers support. The media 
sells candidates, sometimes 
finding it is in their best interest 
to smear or promote a candidate. 
Steepee also cites Theodore 
White's The Making of a 
President, 1960. 1964, 1968, 1972 as 
giving evidence to these 

Specifically speaking of the 
1972 election, Steepee maintains 
that Nixon has been an expert 
manipulator of the media. He 
also says that Watergate will be a 
dead issue by the next 
Presidential election. With 
regard to judicial impartiality he 
asserts, "take a political hack 
and put a robe on him, and 
shazzam, he is impartial; I don't 
believe it." 

In 1969, one step away from 
completing his doctoral thesis on 
Admiral Alfred Thayer Mahan's 
political theories, Steepee 
declined a National Defense 

Educational Assistance to come 
to CLC. Hearing of an opening in 
the Political Science department 
through a mutual friend of a CLC 
teacher, Steepee saturated Dr. 
Tseng, Chairman of the Political 
Science department with mail. 

"You have to get a letter of 
recommendation from everyone 
you know," observes Steepee. "I 
jumped at the chance to come." 

Asked if he is happy out here he 
unhesitatingly answered yes. He 
likes the Political Science 
Department, which is made 
stronger because of the part-time 
teachers from Cal State North- 
ridge. They can teach their 
specialties here and the depart- 
ment can offer a greater variety 
of classes over the years. 

Even the administration is 
better. Back there no one knew 
his name. He cites the fact that he 
has visited socially with both his 
department chairman and the 
academic dean as proof of the 
easy accessibility to people that 
one may need to see. 

Jonathan Steepee has 
unquestionably immersed 
himself into CLC life. Besides 
teaching and being available to 
students, he is Chairman of the 
President's Inauguration 
Committee, Chairman of the 
Academic Affairs Committee, 
organizer of a student-run 
political science journal, and the 
adviser of the Black Student's 

In addition he is supporting a 
senatorial candidate. He also was 
instrumental in arranging a 
Koinonia group whose theme is 
poverty and in arranging visits to 
various penitentiaries. 

Steepee says his ambition is to 
stay right here. Judging from the 
multitude of activities in which 
he is involved, he is going to 
make sure he stays. 

Psycho Set for 
October 19 

On October 19 at 8:15 p.m. the 
Sophomore Class will sponsor a 
showing of Alfred Hitchcock's 

Acclaimed "the master 
shock film of all times," it stars 
Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, 
John Gavin and Janet Leigh as 
Marion Crane and co-stars 
Martin Balsam and John 

Included in the current showing 
are many scenes the TV version 
didn't dare show. The much 
talked-about, blood-curdling 
shower bath sequence occurs 
exactly 44 minutes after the start, 
and, incidentally, no one will be 
admitted to see "Psycho" except 
from the very beginning. The 
picture has been rated "M" — 
suggested for mature audiences. 

The barest story outline, 
supplied by Hitchcock himself, 
describes "Psycho" as the story 
of a young woman who steals a 
fortune and encounters a young 
man too long under the 
domination of his mother. The 
mother, to quote Hitchcock, is a 
"homocidal maniac." With 
typical Hitchcock aptness, the 
electrifying story is laid against 
the eerie background of an 
isolated motel and a brooding 
Victorial mansion. Time: the 

Based on an Inner Sanctum 
mystery novel, Hitchcock 
stresses the bizarre. The film 
opens with a torrid love scene be- 

Seniors enjoy the food and hold their meeting. 

Senior Class Searches for Theme and Banner 

The senior class held their first 
meeting of the year at an in- 
formal barbecue, Sunday, 
September 23. 

All seniors, both on and off 
campus were invited. About sixty 
persons showed up at the outdoor 
stage for the free food and 

Senior Vice-president Steve 
Augustine addressed the group, 
stressing the need for unity and 
action. A particular problem this 
class is faced with is that one 
hundred of the students are on 
campus while ninety-nine are off. 
The barbecue was staged 
specifically to overcome this 

problem and bring the class 

Augustine also proposed that 
the class theme and banner be 
decided soon as another means of 
uniting and identifying seniors. 
The idea of having a theme and a 
banner that carries it out is 
traditional. At Augustine's 
suggestion the meeting broke up 
into small groups to discuss ideas 
for a theme. 

A fitting theme for the class of 
1974 would have to encompass the 
changes they have witnessed; a 
radical change in dorm policy, 
from hours for freshman women 
and nine hours of open house per 

week to what it is now. They have 
seen three presidents govern the 
school as well as other ad- 
ministrative changes. 

The themes suggested will 
either go to the class for a vote or 
the Executive Council will choose 

President Harry Griffith had 
this to say, "The theme should 
also reflect unity. We need unity. 
Sixty people can't carry two 

Any seniors who want to help 
with the theme or banner or who 
have ideas for senior activities 
can contact Harry Griffith or 
Steve Augustine at 492-3802. 

CLC Sells Water Tank 

The large silver water tank 
which stood as a landmark of 
CLC's past, was lifted by a 
hydrocrane, placed on a flat bed 
truck, and moved to a ranch high 
above Lake Sherwood. 

Co-owned by the Houses and 
Bradleys, the Lonesome Water 
Ranch purchased the 25,000 
gallon water tank from the 
college last summer in order to 
supplement the undependable 
water supply in that area. 

With this tank and a smaller 
one Mr. Bradley is setting up a 
water system which utilizes the 
force of gravity for pressure. The 
smaller tank drains into the 
larger and circulates throughout 
the 160 acre ranch south of Lake 
Sherwood in Carlyle Canyon. 

Mr. Bradley had been told of 
the available tank from a per- 
sonal friend who was employed 
by the school. Five weeks ago, 
the tank had been drained of the 
stagnant water that remained in 
it, and the following morning two 
trucks arrived and hauled it 

tween Miss Leigh and Gavin. The 
film's other stars, Perkins and 
Miss Miles are not involved in the 
scene which has been described 
as "sexy." Hitchcock believes 
that such a scene has its place. 
"Sex in films should be only for 
the purpose of explaining a 
situation or advancing the 
story," he says. "Give audiences 
too much sex, or in bad taste, and 
subconsciously they will rebel, 
laugh or become embarrassed." 
There isn't very much laughter 
in "Psycho." Suspense, drama 
and downright terror take 

Formerly located south of the 
tennis courts, the tank had been 
out of use for several years 
having been replaced by the city 
water system in 1964. 

During the early days of CLC 
the tank had been filled by two 
wells located near University 
School and at the entrance of 
Faculty Road. Then in 1960 the 
college started work on a 
reservoir atop Mount Clef, but 
this was soon abandoned due to 
the fact that the rocky subsoil 
was too expensive to dig out. 

Finallv in 1964, CLC tied into 

Village Water Company, one of 
the three main water companies 
in Thousand Oaks at that time. 
Since then the tank has been a 
white elephant, half filled with 
water simply to avoid rusting. 

As the housing along Faculty, 
Pioneer and Luther Streets 
developed through the years the 
now Cal American Co. was forced 
to expand the system into what is 
presently here. 

The two "u" shaped supports 
shrouded by the ivy fences west 
of Beta dorm remain as rem- 
nants of CLC's early days.

Demento Appeals to Wide Audience 

Not this Barn, honey. 

The ability of one radio station 
to reach a wide range of ages is 
usually difficult, but KMET (94.7 
FM) presents a format on Sunday 
nights that overcomes this dif- 
ficulty. Hosted by Dr. Demento, 
music from 1910 to 1973 is 
presented and can be enjoyed by 
all during the hours of 6:00 p.m. 
tq 10:00 p.m. 

The show presents a range of 
entertainment varied enough to 

reach and hold the attention of 
anyone listening. Artists from 
previous eras such as Spike Jones 
and Abbott and Costello are 
featured in original recordings. 
A feature different from other 
radio shows is that the recordings 
Dr. Demento airs are, for the 
most part, unobtainable by the 
listening audience in stores. 
Therefore, requests for songs are 
taken by telephone and mail and 
Dr. Demento locates the 
recordings in his own personal 

collection or from recordings 
contributed by the public. The 
listener's requests for each week 
are also tabulated by Dr. 
Demento's "supporting cast," 
Captain Chaos and Jungle Judy. 
The recordings with the most 
requests are then placed in a 
"Top 10" which is aired during 
the show at about 9:00 p.m. The 
following is a sample Top 10 
taken from the week of Sep- 
tember 17 through September 23.

Anyway, after my bedsprings had all popped up through the

asked me to tell them a bedtime story. So I did : 

Legend of Kingdom of Callucoll revealed 

— all work and no pay made Joe a dull boy. 

Joe Fails as Shoe Shine Boy 

From there, he went down to the barn, and it just happened to be 
game night. The place was packed. He could hardly decide which 
seat to sit in. Finally, he joined in a game of Pit, but he landed one 
on Berry Lacca's shoe and was immediately thrown out. 

Next, he went over to the gym and tried out as a projectionist He 
was doing fine, but in the middle of Mae West's I'm No Angel he got 

Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Callucoll, there was a great so excited that he lost control of himself and stuck his finger in the 

crimef ighter named Captain Joe Eagle. It was his job to keep the 
place clean and in general just get rid of all the mean, nasty, ugly, 
and evil in the kingdom. 

Now this wasn't an easy job in such a large kingdom, especially 
the time when he had to carry out all the cigarette machines; but 
through determined effort he managed to keep things cool. That is, 
until he uncovered the Smut Hut, that obscene little center for the 
plot to undermine the national image of Callucoll. 
Smut Hut Black Spot In Joe's Career 

Unfortunately, Joe Eagle was unable to destroy the Smut Hut and 
he was fired Later, the Kingdom hired Zeke the Asparagus. But all 
Zeke ever did was shoot beavers, so he got fired too. 

The kingdom's only hope then was a young, illiterate columnist 
named Flash, but all he was able to do was tell lousy bedtime 
stories, and so he was fired, too. To this day, Flash sits underneath 
a rock reading back issues of the HACKO and eating popcorn. 
Gavel. Gavel. Who's got the Gavel? 

Well, to get back to Joe Eagle, he decided that he didn't have 
enough money to go into retirement, so he went out and looked for a 
job. First he tried the Senate, but mat proved fruitless — nothing 
grows in the hostile environment of Mr. Clef. 


From LUTHER to the 18th Hole 

Needless to say, his hero self-image was being completely 
destroyed. He had even tried golfing in the Mt. Clef Open, but he 
mistook Barry Ybarra for the eighteenth hole and lost his entire 
remaining fortune to the dentist 

Fortunately, he had one last chance to prove his worth. He signed 
up for the coned volleyball tournament. 

"Did he win the tournament single-handed?" asked the 
leopardskinned fairy. 

"No, silly. Volleyball is played with two hands," said Marian the 

Joe Makes it as Pine Cone Tycoon 

Well, it turns out that he hung himself in the net and they had to 
cart him off to the hospital. However, he was discovered by Berl

acute toilet paper shortage there. 

Isn't that a neat bedtime story, girls? Girls? Girls!? I wondered

to see happen on this campus. 
Some of the events taking shape 
are the "Mt. Clef Open," a

"but I feel that this year is going 
to be great!" 

"The 'Mt. Clef Open' was held

organizor MikeKirkpatrick. "It's 
an eighteen hole golf course set 
up throughout the dorm, (up- 
stairs, etc.) with prizes for the

Kip Downen, just prior to the fatal 
play that ended his college football 


Varsity Drops to 
Frisco State 

Downen Out for Season 

CLC's Kingsmen football squad 
looks to be hard pressed this 
Saturday night at 7:30 when they 
battle Cal Poly Pomona there, 
without Kip Downen who was 
injured at San Francisco State 
last Saturday. 

"Kip Downen was operated on 
at Westlake Hospital Monday," 
revealed Coach Robert Shoup. 
"He suffered a triad and will be 
in a cast for the rest of the season, 
and is lost for his senior year." 

Bill Wilson, a product of 
Temple City and their win streak 
which •reached 43 or so at the 
close of last season, will handle 
quarterbacking duties, with 
Casey McLaughlin of the Knaves 
backing him up. 

"His two quarters against State 
were the longest he's played at 
varsity level," pointed out Coach 
Shoup. "I think he'll do a good job 
and he'll get better as the season 
goes on." 

The ranks of starters have been 
thinned in the football wars. "We 
have four starters and 
Cvijanovich who can not or will 
not play," groaned Coach Shoup. 

With depleted ranks, the 
Kingsmen face an offense 
minded team. "They use a four- 
out, a pro-type of offense, except 
they use one of their running- 
backs as a fourth receiver," 
explained Coach Shoup. 

"The quarterback, instead of 
dropping straight back as most 
quarterbacks do, does a sprint 
out. We have to worry about his 
running as well as passing," he 

"Zorn (their quarterback) 
played high school ball at Artesia 
and JC football at Cerritos, and 
Fabian is a super receiver," 
related Coach Shoup. 

"They're a good aggressive 
football team," acknowledged 
the Kingsmen coach, "We have to 
play Pomona as though this was 
one of the most important games 
of the year." 



The football mentor is needy of 
that 100 per cent effort to help 
him in this game, as Pomona has 
tied California State at Los 
Angeles (34-34), beaten 
Sacramento St. and Southern

Sacramento. Last year's score 
was 22-14 CP Pomona. Pomona

Fullerton, CP San Luis Obispo,

UC Riverside. 

"We'll try to do the things we 
do. well," says Coach Shoup in 
anticipation of the battle. 

Coach Shoup 's charges were 
ready for San Francisco State, 
but after Downen was carried 
from the field, the defense let slip 
a 14rl3 CLC lead and the Golden 
Gators emerged victorious. 

Gene Ubelhardt and Butch 
Eskridge scored for the 
Kingsmen, Ubelhardt first with a 
run, and Eskridge on a pass. 
State scored on a pass and two 

Coach Shoup was generous 
with good game credits. 
"Ubelhardt was the best runner, 
I think it was close to 100 yards he 
compiled; Doug Rihn (safety) 
and Richard Lopez (linebacker) 
both did good jobs, (both are 
sophomores); Steve Spray had a 
good game in backup role; Mark 
Beckham did a good job at 

However 100 per cent effort 
was not given by all. "The rest of 
our line was not as aggressive as 
I hoped," Coach Shoup confessed. 

Still the team played well. The 
defense even had its big half in 
the second part of the game, but 
it was just that close, and . . . that 
heartbreaking, as the Gators 
copped a 19-14 victory.

Knaves Lose to SL0 

Coach Fred Kemps young 
charges take to the Mt. Clef 
Stadium field tomorrow to battle 
Porterville JC in hopes of coming 
away 2-2 on the year. The Knaves 
lost to San Luis Obispo last week 
here at CLC 39-14. 

"The team we're facing this 

-week, the highest IQ is 52, but 
unfortunately, the smallest guy is 
6' 4" 8 280 pounds," jested Coach 

Their nickname is "The Por- 
terville Pickers; changed from 
Porterville Poppies; previously 
the Artichokes. They had that 
name right around the time of 
Haight-Ashbury. They could open 
a clinic downtown and probably 
clean up," he buffooned. 

"Probably, we'll be barely 
competitive," he seriously in- 
formed this reporter. 

The Knaves scored first in the 
game against San Luis Obispo by 
marching 71 yards in 9 plays, the 
final play, Casey McLaughlin 
rushing for three yards on. a 
quarterback keeper at 11:13. Bob 
McAllister kicked the extra point 
for a 7-0 lead. Highlight of the 
drive was a 45 yard pass on the 
first play to No. 81 Don Richard- 

San Luis took the ball and 
muscled their way into the end 
zone. The drive was good for 78 
yards in 13 plays, the two yard 
scamper for the score coming at 
6:39. The extra-point was missed 
and since the rest of the quarter 
was spent going nowhere for both 
teams, the score stood at 7-6, the 
Knaves leading when the second 
quarter began. 

San Luis had just started a 
small march for paydirt when the 
first period had ended. They 
enlarged on the smallness, 
covering 90 yards in seven plays 
at 13:41 to make the score 13-7. 

Late in the half, the Knaves 
under McLaughlin took back the 
lead by traveling 82 yards. A 
couple of passes with a few 
ground-gaining runs took CLC to 
the SLO 7, and there No. 89 Mark 
Scott took a McLaughlin pass for 
the TD. The gun sounded before 
the baby Mustangs could get up 

The second half was a complete 
shutout in terms of freshman 
scoring as the Mustangs, 
bolstered by varsity reserves 
turned the tide to score four 
touchdowns to wipe out the 
closeness of the battle, as the 
final score was 39-14. 

McLaughlin will be backing up 
varsity QB Bill Wilson this 
weekend, and so will not suit up 
with the Freshman. "Casey was 
26 for 37 in gaining 268 yards 
against San Luis," pointed out an 
assistant coach, Dave Regalado, 

"On the season he's 58 for 79 in 
completions, and 7 touchdowns in 
three weeks." 

"Unfortunately, we have not 
perfected the magic-mirror trick 
so that he can be in two places at 
once," lamented Coach Kemp. 

Taking over duties from the 
departing Casey will be Carl 
Mel horn. "Carl is tired of being a 
spear carrier and wants to be a 
front runner," claims Coach 

Injuries have bitten just as 
deeply into the Knaves ranks as 
into the Varsity's. "Lester 
Haynes suffered a contusion of 
the left thigh," Coach Kemp 
explained, "We're co-sponsored 
by American Red Cross this 
week." The injuries to Haynes 
and several others all happened 
in last week's battle.

Looking back in retrospect, the 1960's was a decade characg 

□ terized by dissatisfaction and unrest. The tension of dissent did not a 
§ confine itself only to America, but was a worldwide phenomenon. S 
g Europe, Eurasia, Asia, Latin America, Africa and the North g 
§ American continent felt the strains of the push and pull of § 
g dissension. B 

Slogans of absolute right, universal morals, and universal ethics h 
g appeared. Student manned demonstrations and riots became 
a vogue. Intellectual idealism 9uperceeded reality, and perspectives a 
§ were lost, seemingly blown away by the wind. "We have been § 
a deceived," they cried. "We are not a nation of moral people, yet we a 
§ claim to be." The dissidents could not cope with the contradictions ^ 
g of ideology and harsh political reality. B 

□ n 

5 All nations have a dominant ideology, whether state or religious, a 
s i Nations exist in a community of competitors, which makes g 
g desirable the acquisition of allies and influence on neutral nations, g 

□ Ideology, whether practiced or not does have cohesive charac-Q 
g teristics that justify, rationalize, legitimize, and thus sanctify g 

□ coalitions and actions that maintain and protect the existence of the a 
g state. Survival sometimes justifies and necessitates transgressions g 
g beyond morality. Some of the dissenters could not accept any form b 
§ of compromise between morality and reality in world politics. i ! 

g Of Idealism, Hans Morgenthau wrote, "First the idealist g 
D becomes intoxicated with world embracing principles that are too a 
g vague and general* to provide guidance to policy. Second, the g 
g idealist dresses parochial interests in the garb of moral principles,, h 

§ and presumes that the rest of the world, in refusing to grant his g 
policy cosmic righteousness, is ipso facto less moral (or rational) g 
a than he." | 

g George Kennan wrote, "The idealist is devoted to the elimination g 
a of war and violence, yet the rigidity and fanaticism he conjures up n 
g makes violence more enduring, more terrible, and more g 
g destructive ... A war fought in the name of high moral principle 
ks finds no end short of some form of total domination." ' 

Neither Morgenthau, nor Kennan imply that only political g 
necessity should govern policy. The idealist gives life meaning. If h 
all of our actions were to be governed by the environment, life could g 
have no substance. There is more to life than survival. Man has 
aesthetics and abstractions that require fulfillment. If man is to^ 
survive, reason and hope must prevail. □ 

Necessity and Principle together should govern state action, but § 
sometimes they find themselves in direct conflict. Out of this g 
results hypocrisy, but hypocrisy will not condemn a state's a 
existence; for man himself is not yet free of hypocrisy and con- g 
tradiction. This is still the beginning. a

Soccer Club Sets 
First League Game 

Orstr. by Puzzle*. Inc. No. 110 

On Sunday, October 14 the CLC 
Soccer Club will play its first 
league game. After having lost an 
invitational game with Azusa- 
Pacific College on September 30, 
the team is trying to regain some 

The club played the game 
mainly to gain some experience, 
an area sadly lacking in the 
team's strengths. Rolf Bell, the 
team captain, remarked, "We're 
having problems getting 
regular work-outs because of 
the football team needing the 
field also. We have some ex- 
cellent players, but the team isn't 
quite working together as a unit 
yet. Half of our players are 
Americans, and then we have 
three Kuwaitans, three 
Ethiopians, and one Oriental. 
These guys have been playing all 
their lives and are great." 

"We played in a smog -alert 
down there (Azusa-Pacific) and 

some guys were throwing up on 
the field," Bell explained. 
"Azusa-Pacific has been playing 
intercollegiate ball for four 
years, plus they have a coach and 
a lot of money behind them." 

The club is strong in all areas of 
the game except that the goalie, 
Mark Decker, hasn't had enough 
time to get confident with his 
position. "The game with Azusa' 
showed us where some of the 
faults were in our positions. We 
have to take some of the offense 
away to strengthen the defense, 
which makes the offense weaker. 
If I can put the starting forwards 
where I'd like them to be, then 
we'll have a high scoring team," 
added Bell. 

All of the club's league games 
are on Saturday afternoons with 
a few invitational games against 
other colleges on Sundays. 

their neighbors in all parts of 
the globe. 

This process has led us to 
borrow more and more from 
each other; diffusion of 
culture is inescapable. 
Furthermore, the increased 
quantity of artifacts and 
knowledge has made 
possible hundreds, even 
thousands, of new com- 
binations in our culture so 
that ever greater diversity is 
also made possible. 

We are striving to un- 
derstand each other as our 
communication and tran- 
sportation media bring us 
into ever closer contact and 
our sharing of culture makes 
us more interdependent on 
one another. More than 
technical knowledge for 
earning a living, today we 
need an understanding of our 
neighbors — a non- 
ethnocentric appreciation 
for the indifferences culture 
that lie about us. 

We need in-depth studies of 
ethnology and anthropology 
to provide ourselves with the 
knowledge that helps us 
know the values and the 
workings of these other 
cultures. Too, we need the 
language and oral skills 
which will aid us in com- 
municating and interpreting 
our words and thoughts to 
others and theirs to us. 

The kinds of things learned 
about others in language 
courses and the studies of 
cultural origins and 
variations broached in an- 
thropology courses, I 
believe, are essential to a full 
life in the world of tomorrow, 
which arrived or arrives 
sometime today. Culture is 
yours; fill up your tank; be 
educated in the liberal arts.

Cont. from page 8 

Despite this however, the 
Senate cannot find it in their 
hearts to allocate $250.00 for the 
editor of the ECHO and $250.00 
for the editor of the CAM- 
PANILE. Looks like a pretty poor 
showing if you ask me. 

Now you have at least some of 
my reasons for contemplating 
resignation. The decision has not 
been an easy one. My career at 
CLC has centered around the 
ECHO, and it is very difficult to 
say that it hasn't been worth it. It 
does seem rather ridiculous 
however to be killing myself for 
something that almost no one on 
the Senate, as representative of 
the student body, thinks is worth- 

If I do in fact tender my 
resignation, I will continue my 
association with the ECHO as a 
reporter and as such will write 
my column and one news or 
feature story for each issue. 
Evidently, this is the only 
capacity in which I am valuable 
to the ASB Senate.

ASB Priorities Need Re-evaluation 

™ m ^^^ ..... .. i n_i •• »u„« ;- .■.,~ r .ncaA in ovacllv nnnr this 

It is with a great deal of regret 
that I announce the imminence of 
my resignation as editor of the 
unforeseen circumstances, my 
resignation will become effective 
on November 2, 1973. 

This decision has been ex- 
tremely difficult for me to make. 
I have been proud of my three 
year association with the ECHO 
and I believe that I have been 
able to make a positive con- 
tribution to the newspaper and, 
through the paper, to the student 

Evidently, if the Student Senate 
is as representative of the student 
body as they claim to be, then my 
contribution has been of no value. 
As a matter of fact, if the Student 
Senate is as representative of the 
student body as they claim to be, 
then the vast majority of the 
student body is either entirely 
apathetic or too chicken to let 
anybody know their position on 
the issues. 

•Senators abstain" 

I am referring to a recent vote 
taken in the ASB Senate in which 
the majority of the senators sat 
idly by after a heated discussion, 
either too afraid to vote and 
express their opinion or too 
apathetic to care, while three 
(count 'em— three) senators 
decided the issue for the entire 
student body. Aren't you glad 
that you were represented by 
three people who are apparently 
the only three in the Senate with 
any guts or any brains? 

The outcome of this 
monumental vote was the 
decision that apparently three 
years of hard work and 
dedication are of no value— that 
the technical skills acquired over 
three years in college and one in 
high school are worthless. 

"No remuneration" 

The decision was made that the 
editors of the ECHO and CAM- 
PANILE should not be 
remunerated for the work they do 
as employees of the ASB. I cannot 
speak for the editor of the 
CAMPANILE, Cindy Camberg, 
but I for one am not going to take 
it. I am not that masochistic. 

I frankly do not understand the 
motives behind the decision, but I 
do know that at this very minute, 
CLC may be the only four year 
college in the state of California 
that does not remunerate the 
publication editors in some way. 
Some examples may help to 
clarify this. University of 
Redlands, one of the colleges with 
which we compete in athletic 
events, pays the editor of the 
newspaper $800.00 per year, the 
business manager $600.00 per 
year, the managing editor $450.00 
per year, and the three page 
editors $350.00 per year each. It 
may be interesting to note here 
that I have been unable to locate 
a business manager this year, so 
I have been doing that job also. 

Occidental College in Los 
Angeles pays the editor of the 
newspaper $20.00 per week and 
each of his seven assistant 
editors $15.00 per week out of 
student body funds. 

Finally, Pepperdine College, 
Los Angeles campus, gives the 
editor of the newspaper full 

Furthermore, to the best of my 
knowledge, this will be the first 
year that the editor of the ECHO 
has not been remunerated in 
some way. Not more than five 
years ago, the editor received the 
same salary as a student 
assistantship which is $500.00. 

But money isn't really the 
issue, and the pocketbook isn't 
really where it hurts the most. 
What hurts the most is the lack of 
integrity displayed by the 
members of the ASB Senate. 

"Black comedy" 

Senate meetings in general 
have been quite amusing— if you 
have a taste for black comedy. 
Several general characteristics 
have been pervasive. 

First of all, the Senate has a 
general distrust of anyone and 
everyone, including the Cabinet, 
the student body, anybody who 
manages anything whether or not 
the Senate has any say in how 
that particular thing is managed, 
and even their own membership. 

"Reprimanding muggers" 

A second general charac- 
teristic is that they, or at least a 
portion of their membership, has 
decided that they run the College, 
no holds barred, and that, as 
such, they have a right and even 
a responsibility to investigate 
such diverse issues as the Barn 
and muggings on campus. If they 
are up to their typical tricks, they 
will probably issue an official 
reprimand to the muggers. 

I wouldn't object to this if they 
seemed to have a lot of time on 
their hands, but usually it's hard 
enough to get a quorum at a 
Senate meeting, much less turn 
them out for committee meetings 
or special "emergency" 

that was not handed over to them 
during the summer. They didn't 
give up at that though. When they 
found out that their vote didn't 
count, several cabinet members 
tried to influence the vote on the 
same issue at the Senate meeting 
without, however, giving any 
reasons for voting the way they 
did. Clever, n'est-ce pas? 

"Priorities questioned" 

and "glory" that is supposed to 
make up for this is an occasional 
compliment from one of my 
friends or even (rarely) from 
Danny Ramsey if I didn't say 
anything nasty (or true) about 
the ASB government. 
The ASB government isn't 

exactly poor this year either. In 
addition to the regular budget, 
which is larger this year than was 
expected in planning the ASB 
budget, there is also a $2,777.42 
surplus from last year's ASB 
Cont . on page 7 

Integrity Threatened 


These are not my only 
plaints about ASB government. I 2 
also question their priorities in 
terms of where they spend their 
money. I really wonder if the ^ 
comparatively large amounts of ^ 
money spent on single days or ; 

ECHO Loses Value? 

paying for one dance is of greater 
value than the resulting increase 
in quality that would result from 
paying the editor of 





"Secretary more 

"Cabinet also 
to blame" 

Of course, the Executive 
Cabinet is not entirely free of 
blame for the way the Senate is 
behaving either. Although I have 
not had the dubious honor of 
attending any Cabinet meetings 
this year, the cabinet members 
have been very much in evidence 
at recent Senate meetings. As a 
matter of fact, they have been so 
much in evidence that it's a 
wonder the senators can get a 
word in edgewise. 

Not only have they managed to 
dominate recent Senate 
meetings, but those Cabinet 
members who were conducting 
business over the summer suc- 
ceeded in voting on issues that 
were a part of Senate jurisdiction

been the most important factor in determining my life for the last

Inauguration Issue 


A relationship to which people 
commit themselves, and a 
commitment that we enter 
into with God. 

"We are dedicating ourselves 
to this New Covenant ... to 
building the strongest college 
possible. It won't be just the 
administration making the 
covenant," explained Mr. 
Jonathan Steepee, the inaugural 
chairman. "Each member of our 
community will be making the 
covenant along with Dr. Mathews 
and the administrative team." 
The ceremony itself tends to 
demonstrate the idea of unity in 
the college community. 

Pastor Gerry Swanson was 
concerned about writing the 
ceremony with the total par- 
ticipation of .the college com- 
munity. He feels that though the 
community only expresses itself 
through words in the ceremony, 
the reading sets the tone and 

direction in which we go. "They 
are not just spectators — they are 
reading scripture, responding to 
questions, as well as the faculty 
reaffiming their vocation as 
teachers," commented Swanson. 
"Also the Board of Regents and 
the Convocators will be asked to 
rededicate themselves as people 
responsible for the life of the 
college. This is a time of 
celebration, rededication, and 
reaffirmation by everyone who 
has been associated with the 
college over its entire history." 
The ceremony charges the 
faculty, Board of Regents, and 
Convocators directly to new 
commitments, as well as the 
president and the college as a 
whole, who will be given the 
charge and expectations of the 
church by Dr. Mortvedt. "There 
is hardly any other person that 
we have in this country who could 
represent the last thirty to forty 
years of Lutheran Christian 
Higher Education better than Dr 
Mortvedt," explained Swanson. 

"He has been the president of two 
colleges, has served as an 
executive director of one of the 
church boards of education, and 
has been a teacher as well. He is 
more than capable of explaining 
to us our responsibilities to the 
church. He, as well as other 
representatives of the church, 
will be an exciting part of the 

"Mark's interest from the 
outset was not in having a great 
to-do about him or an 
inauguration of just the 
president. It could only be 
meaningful if it was something 
that involved the college com- 
munity," expressed Swanson. 

Steepee then went on to explain 
the goals that should be set by 
each portion of the community. 
"It will be the time when each 
faculty member will be reflecting 
on ways that he can assist the 
college. Each student will be 
- nalyzing himself to see how he 

_3 benefit his fellow students in 
the fulfillment of their goals, as 

well as to see how he can advance 
the intellectual climate of the 
community. Each member of our 
administrative and staff will be 
recommiting himself to that 
selfless service which has 
characterized this college in its 
growth. Each regent and con- 
vocator will not only experience 
this community with the 
students, faculty and ad- 
ministrators, but will rededicate 
himself by this new covenant to 
the ideals of higher education." 
Steepee is excited about seeing 
these ideals become reality. 

Steepee's experience at CLC 
already has shown him that his 
ideals are possible for the 
college. "Probably no other 
college has such warm personal 
relationships over vertical strata 
as does CLC. For instance I know 
of no other college president who 
is as accessible to the faculty and 
students like President Mathews 
is here," commented Steepee. 
"Close personal relationships be- 
tween faculty chairman ad- 

ministrators, and faculty are 
unique here. Relations between 
faculty and students are often 
personal and extensive. Concern 
for even non-academic needs of 
students is common here, almost 
non-existent elsewhere. Close 
student interelationships derive 
from our commitment to 
residential and collective dining 
system. The Christian spirit 
which prevades all of these 
relationships, is the bond which 
gives the community its inner-

Inaugural Ball Set 
for Friday Evening 

On Friday evening CLC 
students, faculty and staff 
members will join with visiting 
regents, convocators, church 
officials, and members of the 
community to celebrate the 
inauguration and installation of 
Dr. Mark A. Mathews and the 
members of the administrative 

The celebration is to be an 
Inaugural Ball preceeding the 
Inauguration ceremonies which 
will take place on Saturday. 

The ball will begin at 8:30 p.m. 

and will be held in the CiX 
gymnasium/auditorium. Attire 
will be semi-formal. 

Music for the evening will be 
provided by the CLC Stage Band 
under the direction of Mr. Elmer 
Ramsey. Another highlight of the 
evening will be a solo singing 
performance by President 

Cost for the evening is $2.50 per 
couple with CLC ID, or $1.25 per 
person. Without the CLC ID, the 
cost will be $5.00. 


At the same time the California 
Lutheran College administration 
celebrates the inauguration of a 
newly-united team, they will be 
suffering a loss. This loss will be 
felt most directly by the ad- 
ministration and staff. Only 
indirectly will the students and 
faculty be aware of it. If Mr. John 
Pantaz could have his way, no 
one would notice his departure. 
To have no one notice would be to 
have been successful in 
establishing the Facilities 
Operations program at CLC. 

"Encompasses three areas" 

The idea of a facilities program 
encompasses three areas. 
Security consists of parking, 
shipping, warehousing, and locks 
and keys. Building takes in 
plumbing, electricity, painting 
and repairs. Upkeep of the lawns, 
athletic fields, and streets come 
under Grounds. Uniting these 
areas under the jurisdiction of 
one man was Pantaz's goal in 
setting up the operation. 

Pantaz is a management con- 
sultant who came to CLC during 
the summer on a temporary 
basis. His original agreement to 
be a consultant has been ex- 
tended into the implementation of 
his plans. Pantaz is modest, but 
he gets excited about the changes 
brought about at CLC. 

"The best we can offer" 

He shares the same philosophy 
as does Mr. Dean Buchanan, 
Vice-president for Business and 
Financial Affairs. They believe 
"a student is entitled to the best 
an environment can offer in 

teaching, learning, residence 
facilities." In regard to 
Buchanan, Pantaz comments 
that "When someone like 
Buchanan wants something done 
it becomes easy for a person 
working for him. Why? Because 
he means business, 'get it done,' 
yet he understands the facets that 
get it done." 

When he arrived at CLC he 
brought a personal touch to the 
facilities department. Faced with 
a tremendous backlog of 
maintenance requests, with a 
summer program that prevented 
access to the dorms and several 
buildings, and the arrival of 
students on September 1 looming 
in the near future. Pantaz met 
with a great challenge. Im- 
mediate action to accomplish his 
goals was imperative, so when 
the Board of Regents gave their 
approval Pantaz started in and 
hasn't stopped yet. 

"Much more to do" 

Although many changes can be 
seen in landscaping, paved roads, 
and patched roofs, there is much 
more he wants to get done. 

Now that the facilities 
department has been established, 
the upgrade program is going to 
be a continuing process. The 
facilities office will be staffed 
with a person to receive requests, 
both urgent and pending, for 
service. The maintenance shops 
will be brought together 
someplace on campus. 

When Pantaz phases himself 
out, the department will be 
headed by three working 
supervisors, responsible to 
Buchanan. Mr. Eldon Hagen will 
be supervisor of Security 

Operations, Mr. Walt Miller 
supervisor of Building 
Operations, and Mr. Ed Perdue is 
designated as Grounds Super- 

With the operation under the 
guidance of these four capable 
men, Pantaz feels he won't be 
missed. The organizational 
phase has been completed, the 
facilities housing program is un- 
derway, inspection and sched- 
uling of work are being im- 

"Apologetic about dorms" 

Both Buchanan and Pantaz are 
encouraged by the progress. 
However, Pantaz does feel 
apolegetic on one aspect — that 
of student housing. He believes 
that since a student spends so 
much time in the dorm, it should 
be like a home. Work on the 
dorms was hampered because 
there was only one week between 
the time when the last summer 
program group left and the first 
students arrived. Pantaz and 
Buchanan have worked ex- 
tensively with Melinda Riley, 
Director of Housing, and the 
Head Residents to establish the 
needs in the dorms and take 
necessary action. 

The implementation of these 
actions is made possible by the 
understanding and cooperation of 
the students. The changes will 
come. Mountclef is scheduled to 
be upgraded in November and 
December and the rest of the 
dorms will follow. 

Pantaz says he has been 
limited only by resources and 
manpower, but the overall spirit,

j MortvedttoSpeakat Friday Convocation 

Dr. Robert A.L. Mortvedt, 
President Emeritus of Pacific 

| Lutheran University, has been 
re-scheduled to address the 

| student body, faculty, and ad- 
ministration at 9:30 a.m. in the 
auditorium on Friday, October 26 
instead of on Thursday as 

Dr. Preus. ALC president, who 

was originally scheduled to speak 

on Friday will be unable to come 

at that time because of the 

| sudden necessity for serious 

! surgery on his son that day. 

At the convocation, Mortvedt 
I will speak on higher education in 
j a speech entitled "Everybody's 
! Miracle — His Mind." 

Mortvedt will also meet faculty 

; and students at 4 :00 p.m. to lead a 
: discussion session. 

Mortvedt has devoted his entire 
life to education as a teacher and 
administrator. A graduate of St. 
Olaf College in 1924, he received 
both his Master's and Ph.D. 
degrees in English from Harvard 
University. He held three 
fellowships at Harvard, one for 
purposes os studying abroad. He 
is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. 

He has served on the faculties 
of Wartburg College, St. Olaf, 
Stephens, and the University of 
Kansas City. At the latter in- 
stitution, he was also Dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences and 
Vice President for ten years from 
1943-53. For five years, from 1953- 
58, he was President of Bethany 
College in Lindsborg, Kansas. 

In June 1958, he began his work 
as Executive Director of the 
Board of Christian Higher 
Education of the Augustana 
Lutheran Church, and assumed a 
similar position with the United 
Lutheran Church in America in 
November of 1959. The combined 
program embraced one 
university, sixteen senior 
colleges, two junior colleges and 
eleven seminaries. 

On August l, 1962, he was 
named President of Pacific 
Lutheran University in Tacoma, 
Washington. He requested 
retirement seven years later. The 
contribution he has made to 
quality education is recognized in 
the fact that the outstanding 
library on the PLU campus bears 
his name. 

He has served on many 
national and regional church and 
educational boards and com- 
missions. For ten years from 
1948-58 he was on the Board of 
Directors of the Augustana 
Theological Seminary and at the 
time of the final organization of 
the Lutheran School of Theology 
at Chicago, he was Chairman of 
the Committee which recom- 
mended its establishment 

In Washington, Mortvedt was 
chairman and chief executive 
officer of the Independent 
Colleges of Washington, Inc. for 
five years. He is a member of the 

Boards of Goodwill Industries 
Washington State Historical' 
Society, and Washington State 
Higher Education Facilities 

He is listed in Who's Who in 
America and Who's Who in the 
West; and he received honorary 
degrees from PLU, Augustana 
College at Rock Island, and 
Wagner College. Augustana 
College at Sioux Falls presented 
to him its Centennial Award; St. 
Olaf, its Distinghished Alumnus 
Award; and Lutheran 

Brotherhood, its Distinguished

Stahl to Speak at 
CLC on Watergate 

Ms. v Stahl joined CBS 
News' Bureau as a reporter in 
April 1972. She had been a 
reporter and producer for WH- 
DH-TV, the CBS Television 
Network affiliate in Boston, 
Mass., from 1970. 

She began her professional 
career in 1965 as an assistant 
researcher for ' the Population 
Council in New York, and in 1966, 
became an assistant to the 
speechwriter for Mayor John 
Lindsay. During the 1968 
Presidential campaign, she 
joined NBC News as a writer and 
researcher in the Election Unit, 
and at the conclusion of the 
campaign, she worked for the

Speaks About Silence 
Father Vincent Martin 

Clarence Knutson, manager of 
the CLC swimming pool, recently 
announced that the pool hours for 
the coming year will be from 1 :00 
p.m. to 4:00p.m. Monday through 
Friday. The reduced number of 
hours is due to the reduced 
budget allotted for the year. 

Knutson commented that the 
present budget only allows him to 
schedule fifteen hours a week of 
lifeguard duty at minimum wage. 
"I will not allow my five 
lifeguards to work for nothing- 
it's not fair to them " 

He further stated that since it is 
registered as a pub'>c pool, a 
lifeguard must be or uty when 
anyone is in the wa . Because 
of this, if anyone hf . the fence, 
the college is re- -nsible and 
fully liable. 

As a public pool, it must be kept 
up to certain standards. These 
include maintaining clorine, 

acid, and salt counts in the water 
and meeting specifications about 
pool facilities. 

The standards also state that 
no more than sixty people can use 
the pool at one time. "This 
summer." Knutson stated, "as 
many as eighty at a time would 
be in the pool ." He also remarked 
that this causes the water to lose 
its salt content and use gallons 
more clorine and acid. 

According to Knutson, "The 
pool is very suitable for student 
and faculty use, however if the 
school wishes to use the pool any 
more for large classes and camps 
they should build a new pool. 
Rather than try to improve and 
modify the present pool, it would 
be wiser to build a new pool 
elsewhere on campus." 

Efforts have been made to 
reduce costs for pool operation, 
such as ordering clorine bulk to 
take advantage of lower prices. 

150 Parents Come 
to Parent's Day 

Parent's Day at CLC was held 
on Saturday, October 13. 

"The idea was to give the 
parents an opportunity to come 
back to campus and see their 
children, the staff, and the 
school," commented Al Kemp- 
fert, director of Parent-Alumni 
relations. Over 150 parents at- 
tended from as far away as 
Toronto, Canada. 

Included on the schedule ol 
events was the drama production 
o of A Streetcar Named Desire. 
The parents were sent a form 
allowing them to make advanced 
reservations for the play. 
Parents were also invited to the 
varsity football game between 
CLC and Claremont-Mudd. 

Although they were not housed 
or fed by the school, the parents 
were given greatly reduced rates 
on many items, such as motel 
accommodations. "We had 
thirty-six parents take advantage 
of this service," declared 

"Silence as a Means of Prayer" 
was the subject as Father Vin- 
cent Martin spoke Monday, 
October 15 during the Christian 
Conversations hour. He was 
chosen as a speaker because of 
his association with Thomas 
Merton, who is the model under 
study in the current series. 

Father Martin, who is a 
Benedictine Monk, stressed that 
the meaning of silence is in action 
and noise. In other words, silence 
and rest are a respite from work 
and must be treated that way. A 

way of understanding this is by 
comparing it to the idea of the 
Jewish Shabbat. On the Shabbat 
absolutely no work may be done' 
leaving the whole day for worship 
and silence. The reason for this 
custom is to find meaning in the 
preceding week and to gather 
strength for the struggles and 
hardships of the next. 

Contemporary Christian Con- 
versations take place every 
Monday morning at 10:10 a.m in 
Montclef Foyer. Everyone is 
urged to attend.

PhilCohen Speaks 
on Data Center 

Mr. Phillip Cohen, Director of 
the National Legal Data Center 
on obscenity law fits the role of a 
knowledgeable lawyer ad- 
ministering a highly con- 
troversial project. 

In this time of keeping 
everything concerning govern- 
ment on higher levels, Cohen 
admitted there was nothing 
secret about the project. He 
emphasized that "you students 
can be as personal and as ob- 
noxious as you wish, as long as 
you allow me to be equally ob- 

The Center exists, Cohen 
elaborated, on a grant from the 
Law Enforcement Assistance 
Administration which receives 
money made available by the 
Omnibus Crime Control and Safe 
Streets Act. It is one area of a 
program designed to provide 
Federal aid to enforce laws at the 
local level. 

Cohen claimed that federally 
financed programs to fight 
consumer fraud, to buy 
helicopters and detection for 
local forces and to provide such 
things as a foot patrol for Is la 
Vista fell under this same 

The direct need for a program 
to fight pornography resulted 
from a study commissioned by 
the late President Johnson to find 
out about pornography or ob- 
scenity (terms which Cohen used 
synonomously). The results were 
expressed in a majority report, 
which recommended repeal of all 
obscenity laws affecting con- 
senting adults. Underlying this 

action was the assumption that 
the laws were not enforced. The 
minority report rationalized that 
the laws could not be enforced 
because prosecutors or public 
defenders, usually, usually fresh 
out of law school were inex- 
perienced and lacked ex- 
pertise. In other words, they 
usually lost to the private 
defenders who had money at 
their disposal. The minority 
report countered that there 
should be a program set up to 
assist prosecutors *and to test 
whether the laws were good or 

The Senate adopted the 
minority report and the 
Department of Justice felt they 
should act on it and so in January 
1973 the National Legal Data 
Center was established at 
California Lutheran College. 
When the grant was offered to 
CLC in August 1972, it came with 
the stipulation that the ad- 
ministrator be an attorney 
versed in Criminal Law. Phillip 
Cohen had been practicing law 
for eight years and teaching 
Constitutional Law at USC, UCSB 
and CLC for the past four. 

Cohen rejected the offer at first 
but flying to Washington to meet 
with Justice Department officials 
changed his mind. He discovered 
they were holding the view that 
neither minority or majority 
opinions were correct and the 
project was to be an experiment 
of which one was better. 

Cohen outlined the functions of 
the Center, what they did and did 
not do. He asserted that everv 

Mr. Phillip Cohen, Direcetor 

of the National Legal Data Center 

on obscenity laws. 

action was a response to a 
prosecutor. For example, a 
prosecutor calls and requests 

information on how to draft jury 
instructions. He is sent xeroxed 
information of what they have 
filed. The Center cannot initiate 
laws, actions or calls. They do not 
advise a prosecutor to prosecute 
or not. At this point Cohen defined 
a prosecutor as someone who 
upheld the law and took action 
when he felt something was 
wrong. He made it clear that a 
prosecutor was not to be confused 
with a persecutor. Cohen 
vehemently expressed the fact 
that the Center does not assist the 
defense. Defense attorneys are 
well supported by federal and 
private grants. 

Questions on the recent 
Washington Post article, clearly 
asked in a way designed to put 
Cohen on the defensive, failed to 
have that effect. He calmly 
denied or confirmed the 
questioned statements. 

"Do you write anti-obscenity 

"We will comment on 
legislation but the grant prohibits 
writing on it." 

"Do you provide expert wit- 
nesses to testify in obscenity 

"Yes, there are pools of expert 
witnesses. For example a 
community leader is a person 
who is an expert witness on what 
the community will or won't 
tolerate in the way of movies." 
He mentioned that the State of 
California established uniform 
community standards. 

On one statement contained in 
the article, the one alleging that 
the Center compiled information 
concerning shady legal tactics of 

a prominent defense attorney, 
Cohen was adamant that he was 
unaware that it had happened. 
However, he stated that it 
definitely would not happen 

To answer the question "why at 
CLC" Cohen pointed to Homer 
Young, Administration of Justice 
professor, Retired member of the 
FBI and consultant to the Center 
as the catalyst. Young, who was 
testifying in an obscentiy trial in 
New Orleans, was approached by 
Father Robert Hill, co-author of 
the minority repor and chairman 
of the citizen's group Morality in 
Media. After a visit to CLC by two 
Justice Department officials the 
grant was offered. 

-Although Young and Father 
Hill are both members of a five 
man board selected for their 
expertise to advise the Center, 
they have no say about the way in 
which the program is conducted. 
They can only see that the 
mandate of the grant is carried 

In regards to the adverse 
publicity, Cohen claimed that it 
couldn't be as bad as everyone 
says because the President of the 
Motion Picture Producers 
Association of America had his 
staff attorneys check it out and 
they had no quarrel. They were 
assured that the Center only 
disseminated the facts. 

Cohen called the Center a 
benefit to the college in that a 
certain percentage of the income 
from Federal grants goes back to 
the institution. He estimated 
the total for next year would be 
$30,000. No total was given for 
this year. The grant also makes 
CLC eligible for other grants. 

Cohen concluded the interview 
with a sincere invitation to 
students to come and see what 
the Center is all about He in- 
dicated that "obscenity can be 
bare, no pun intended, when the 
emotion is removed." 

Students See Cvrano 
at Ahmanson Theatre 


On Thursday, October 11, 
several CLC students went to see 
Cyrano de Bergerac at the Ah- 
manson Theater. This event was 
organized by the French 
Department, which was able to 
obtain the tickets at a great 

Richard Chamberlain played 
the leading role and did a fan- 
tastic job, except that during the 
dying scene, his bandage fell off. 
The make-up job on Chamberlain 
was amazing. His vocal in- 
tonations, facial expressions, and 
posture all contributed im- 
mensely to the character of 
Cyrano. Especially memorable 
was the opening scene when 
Cyrano composed a poem while 
sword fighting. 

The character of Christian was 
very well played. One felt as 
sorry for him being loved by 
Roxanne solely for his body as 
one did for Cyrano, who could not 
be loved for his body. 

Next to Cyrano and Christian, 
Ragueneau, the cook, was the 
most colorful character and Kurt 
Kasynar did a great job in that 

Roxanne was portrayed rather 
interestingly. She seemed to be 
more of a common type rather 
than being high bred and 

Unfortunately, Werner 
Klemperer did a rather mediocre 
portrayal of Count de Guiche, 
and one saw him as more of a 
nuisance than the lowly cad he 
should have been. But except for 
de Guiche, the entire cast was 
excellent and the play received a 
standing ovation. 

After the play, most of those 
attending went to the Cafe' Bras- 
serie, a nice, little French 
restaurant on Sunset Boulevard 
in Hollywood.

Student Survey 

A few days after the un- 
precented resignation of Vice- 
President Spiro Agnew, this 
reporter stepped out onto the CLC 
campus to garner a few com- 
ments from faculty and students 
about their reaction to Agnew's 
announcement. A simple 
question was asked, "What was 
your reaction to Spiro Agnew's 

Jamie Thomson- "Our whole 
government is doing the same 
thing it seems like. President 
Nixon did it so why can't SDiro?" 

Frank Maxim - "I think in his 
resignation he did the best thing, 
I think the saddest part is is his 
attitude towards the anti-war 
demonstrators and how he really 
wants them to be locked up and 
shipped to Siberia and this type of 
thing, and then thev let him off." 

Troll Season 
Opens at CLC 


All across the country bands of peasants armed with rakes, 
scythes, and clubs, mounted on horseback, bound through the 
nation's forests to the sound of baying hounds. Yes, it's troll season 
once again and everyone's got the itch to go "a trollin'." 

At first glance, all of this may seem a bit removed from the 
scholastic pursuits at CLC, and previously, your chance to bag a 
troll would have to wait until the Interim when you could afford a 
month of patient stalking through the Arkansas back-country or the 
Black Forest of Germany, but fortunately for troll enthusiasts in 
California, the time and expense that normally goes into obtaining 
a high quality troll may at long last be at an end. 

A domestic breed of troll has been developed by the Christian 
Brothers Winery and it is reported that one of these scrappy 
boogers has been sighted right here on the CLC campus. 

The troll was last sighted in the vicinity of Kingsmen Park and an 
investigation is currently underway concerning ". . . animal noises 
deep in the throat, mewing and the rending of garments" that seem 
to be emminating from the infamous Mountclef Drain Tunnel. 

So, boys and girls, if you want your own lovable, laughable, and 
lecherous troll to have forever, then I suggest you see the movie 
Three Billy Goats Gruff in order to acquaint yourself with trolls a nd 
their mysterious ways. Then, don your galoshes, your Captain 
Midnight "See-in-the-Dark" glasses and head down to Kingsmen 
Park when the moon is full and the wolfbane blooms. Good luck and 
good hunting. 

Phil Kopp- "I don't think it 
affected me at all, I think they 
should have hung him a little 
more than they did because I 
think a normal-type person in his 
situation, having done it would 
have got nailed to the wall. I think 
they sould have strung him up a 
little more than they did." 

Mr. Solem- "He said that he 
resigned for his family and he 
didn't want to drag the court case 
out over along period of time and 
he decided resigning was the best 
thing to do and I believe him in 
that. If I were to put myself in his 
place, this would be a very 
legitimate reason why he would 
flatten himself like that because 
that's a bold move. I mean 
courage takes courage to do 
anything you do, so I think he had 
tremendous courage. I think 
possibly the main reason is 
exactly the way he stated it, I 
don't try to read anything un- 
derneath it." 

Miss Karen Renick sells for $15.00 
at Spurs Slave Sale on Oct. 17. 

Mr. Slattum- "My first opinion 
is: of the fifty charges made 
against him, why his income tax 
man at least didn't alert him to 
one or two of those charges and 
secondarily I'm wondering what 
Nixon's involvement in Agnew's 
resignation was from an earlier 
standpoint. In other words, was 
this planned by the man him- 

Pastor Roge 

Holy Trinity Lutheran on Los 
Arboles is well known to most 
students as the site of certain 
past classes. Its interaction with 
CLC has been comDrised of a 

great deal more than classroom 
space, however. Reverend Roger 
Anderson, the church's pastor for 
six years, says that Holy Trinity 
has been "an extension of the 
campus for the life of the 

Music chapels have been held 
there and the college organ is 
housed in the sanctuary, 
available for student lessons and 
practice and used for Sunday 
morning services. 

Students themselves make ud a

good portion of the congregation, 
from fifty to seventy-five on a

Vacation Church School and 
other youth programs. 

Pastor Anderson says that he 
has very much enjoyed the op- 
portunity for contact with 
students provided by the close 
proximity of the college, and 
warmly welcomes both their 
presence at services and any 
offers of time and assistance to

"Streetcar" Becomes Stella's Story at CLC 


Overall, CLC's production of A 
Streetcar Named Desire directed 
by Dr. Richard Adams was good, 
but good in an unexpected way. It 
was good, not as would be ex- 
pected, as the story of Blanche 
DuBois; rather it was good as 
viewed from the prospective of 
Blanche's sister, Stella. 

Important to all theatrical 
productions is, not only what one 
hears such as the actors' voices 
and words and the sound effects, 
but also the silence in which the 
sounds are surrounded and 

Unfortunately, CLC's Streetcar 
fairly chattered along from 
beginning to end without silence 
to create parentheses around the 
lines which carried the power of 
Williams' theme. 

Without the silences to give 
dramatic breathing time and 
emphasis to the most moving and 
captivating words of the tragedy, 
Ms. Drueding's performance was 
overshadowed, as were the 

poignant lines, by the struggles 
and emotions reflected on the 
face of Ms. McGreevy as Stella. 

Unexpected also was Mr. 
Ybarra's presentation of Stanley 
Kowalski as a rhetorical, 
slouching, always-perfectly- 
logical orator who at his worse 
was slightly irritated by Blanche, 
instead of the regular brutal, 
beast-like, sexually oppressive 
characterization of Kowalski. 

Mr. Ybarra's unimpassioned, 
or at least angerless, portrayal 
also had the effect of thrusting 
Stella's dilemma into the 
spotlight, and at this point one 
found oneself sympathizing 
entirely with Stella and won- 
dering at her huge-heartedness 
and humanity which enabled her 
to love either one of these strange 
characters, let alone both of 
them. What extreme patience. 

However, the production itself 
did not seem to suffer much, 
because of the suffering which 
Ms. McGreevy so eloquently 
portrayed. She easily accepted 

the extra burden and carried it 
lightly, making excellent use of a 
rather complete repetoire of 
mannerisms, gestures, and tones 
to manipulate the audience and 
make them feel with her the 
indecision and conflict within 

Streetcar became Stella's 
tragedy for at the end of the play, 
Stella had become somewhat 
enlightened and had in the face of 
doubt maintained the courage to 
be — the courage to remain 
human and therefore, to love; but 
for Blanche, Streetcar takes on 
pathetic tinges. As she was led 
away by the doctor, one felt a 
sense of loss, as if her struggle for 
nobility and humanity was over. 

Although perhaps Streetcar did 
not happen at CLC the way 
Williams meant it to happen, it 
still put forth the theme of the 
struggle of gentility, culture, and 
sensitivity with violence, 
vulgarity, and inhumanity. In 
this sense A Streetcar Named 
Desire was successful.

Originality High on 



Tuesday, October 16, at 8:00 
p.m. about 150 students attended 
a concert by Champion, a six- 
man rock group formed about 
eight months ago. 

Champion's musical innova- 
tions began with a piano solo by 
Daniel Cabrera, a very smooth, 
jazzy improvisation, which, when 
combined with Roddy Tim- 
brook's percussion and David 
Demeter's drums, turned into a 
very solid and steady beat. A 
short while later, Hal Kent on 
rhythm, Frank Botham on bass, 
and Drake Gardner on .lead 
joined in and things began to 
unfold. The steady beat slowly 
melted into a sort of softshoe 
shuffle and everybody took a turn 
at showing off their individual 
talents, a very relaxing session. 
But they were far from finished. 
At the end of the drum solo, the 
band broke into some really good 
boogie. By then the tightness of 
Champion had become fantas- 
tically obvious. I kept looking for 
the music stands and the con- 
ductors. But the best was yet to 
come and after an innumerable 
set of variations on the basic 
boogie beat, the audience was 
treated to stereo guitars. Two 
guitarists able to play the same 
lead pattern rapidly and in step 
with each other is a very rare 
thing, but somehow Kent and 
Gardner managed to do it for 
close to three and a half minutes. 
Then Gardner broke into some 
slide guitar. It sounded like Jimi 
Hendrix. Of course Hendrix only 
had one guitar, but then 
Champion is just beginning. All in 
all, the first hour of music was 
downright excellent and the 
group was very together 
throughout it. Not too shabby you 
might say. 

After a short break, Champion 
came back with a series of 
shorter numbers. The first riff 
was a bit of a combination of Iron 
Butterfly and Chicago, if you can 
figure that out without totally 
screwing up your mind. Anyway, 
Timbrook took time out from 
percussion to blow some very 
tasty sax, very funky indeed. 
This was followed by what 
sounded as if it should have been 
the sound track to a spy film, 
having a sort of Peter Gunn base 
line to it. I wanted to get up and 
start slinking around the cor- 
ners, but it soon faded into a 
mellow song that put the 
audience into a relaxed, let- 
yourself-go type of mood. Let it 
go is exactly what Champion did. 
They jammed into a really 
driving rock 'n roller called "Get 
on the Train". This song is sure to 
make anyone who listens want to 
get up and dance. Although 
definitely along established lines 
of hard rock, the song also has a 
lot of originality and freshness 
that is all too sadly lacking in 
most current works. Then 
Botham slid into a bass solo that 
definitely ranks him among the 
best, and Gardner followed him 
with an amazingly fast but 
smooth lead solo while Kent went 
offstage to replace a broken 

For the finale, Champion 
played a super-fast number, so 
fast, that I found myself just 
totally freaking out. Demeter and 
Timbrook concluded the second 
hour with a drum percussion duet 
that would have had all of Africa 
green with envy. If Champion 
doesn't soon do some recording, I 
will be very surprised and the 
music world will have missed one 
of the most talented refreshingly 
creative groups to come along in 
a long time. 


.and I'm just as pleased as punch 

to be here tonight." William Rusher, 
editor of the National Review , speaks 
in the CLC gym/auditorium on Wednesday 
evening . 

Why is HE so happy? The pool is only open

Interview with The Mad Rapist. 


ECHO: Tell us what made you choose such an odd profession? 
M.R.: Well, I was planning to be a munchkin, but I couldn't find the 
yellow brick road, and I was a bit too small to be the Ajax knight, so 
what else could I do? 

ECHO: Did you ever consider being a college student? 
M.R.: Actually, I did, but I passed the IQ test and they wouldn't 
accept me anywhere. My employment agency then suggested that I 
become a mugger. You know, there are lots of promising op- 
portunities these days if you just use a little imagination. But 
"mugger" sounded like something you drink out of, so I decided to 
become a mad rapist. That's how I got the nickname M.R. 
ECHO: Just what do you mean by "using a little imagination?'' 
M.R. : Well, for instance, I knew this dude who use to dress up like a 
grape and another dude who use to pretend he was an F.B.I, agent. 
I even knew one joker who dressed up like the President and ran 
around Capitol Hill robbing top government officials and anyone 
else he could get his hands on. 

ECHO: Amazing! Tell us what your favorite routine might be. 
M.R. : Oh, I like to dress up like a troll and hide under bridges. Only 
problem is, there aren't too many billy goats left, and every so 
often I get really frustrated and just jump up on the bridge and 
grab whoever's in sight. 

ECHO: Well, that's interesting. Whatever made you pick CLC for 

M.R.: I was at UCLA for a while, but the rapees are too ex- 
perienced and I kept getting beat up. Then I tried Pepperdine, but 
no one comes out at night there. So finally I came here. 
ECHO: Do you feel that your job makes any positive contributions 
to society? 

M.R.: Oh, yes. As a member of the Rapist's Union, I work in 
cooperation with the Organized Crime Union to provide jobs for 
policemen, who in turn aid us in providing newspaper stories and 
scripts for Dragnet. I also create sales for lightbulb companies. 
ECHO: What do you plan to do in the future? 
M.R.: I'm going to become a nlumber.

When the facts become legend, 
the legend becomes fact. 

Mae West Came Up 
to See Us One Time 

Mae West, the nation's reigning 
sex queen at 81, appeared Friday, 
October 12, in the CLC Gym. Her 
8:00 p.m. appearance followed a 
screening of I'm No Angel, in 
which she starred with Cary 

During the film showing, Ms. 
West dined at the Hungry Hunter 
with a party of twenty -five from 

After an introduction by Barry 
Ybarra, "When the facts become 
legend, the legend becomes fact: 
the legendary Mae West," the 
blond star emerged from the 

She wore a long, off-white 
evening coat over a floorlength 
off-white gown with a jewelled 

The reception was enthusiastic, 
and she advised her audience, 
"Well, I'm so glad to be here. 
Anything you wanna know, just 
ask me the question." 

When asked about her writing 
career, Ms. West spoke at some 
length. She wrote under the 
pseudonym of Jane Mast. The 
surname is a combination of the 
first two letters of her Christian 

name and the final two letters of 
her last name. She felt that 
something "written by, directed 
by, and starring Mae West" 
might appear like too much of a 
good thing. 

One of her more outstanding 
plays was Sex. She received a 

good deal of publicity because, in 
1929, she was arrested and jailed 
on an obscenity charge connected 
with it. The original title was The 
Fleet's In but, because of her 
director's comment, she changed 
it to Sex. The director spoke to 
Ms. West one day about her sex 
appeal. He informed her that she 
possessed "a low sex quality." 
She remembers, "And, the way 
he said it, it sounded better than 
having a high sex quality." He 
continually reminded her of her 
sexiness, and she reports, "Well, 
I heard the word (sex) so often, I 
began to like it." 

Ms. West was presented with 
three awards, by the ASB, AWS, 
and AMS. 

ASB president, Dan Ramsey, 
officially weldomed Ms. West, 
and awarded her with a plaque 
from the Associated Student 

An award for being an 
"American Liberated Woman" 
was presented by Joyce Howard, 
on behalf of the AWS. 

Bruce Thompson, acting for the 
AMS, gave her an award which 
labeled her "the first, last, and 
only American sex symbol." 

Following her appearance, Ms. 
West signed autographs for fans. 

Later, Ms. West was taken to a 
private reception in her honor at 
Nygreen Hall. The reception was 
attended by members of the 
faculty and administration, and 
community leaders. 


Peter Ristuben 

Dr. Peter Ristuben was appointed Vice-President for Academic 
Affairs at CLC on July 15, 1973. 

Formerly the Dean of Academic Affairs at Wagner College in 
Staten Island, New York, he has also served as an Associate 
Director of Overseas Academic Programs for the State University 
of New York. 

He was Assistant Professor of History at Pacific Lutheran 
University in Tacoma, Washington, from 1960-1964, and an 
Associate Professor from 1964-1970. 

From 1966-1968, he acted as an Educational Advisor and 
Program Director for a Teacher-In-Service Education Program in 
Nigeria under the joint sponsorship of the Peace Corps and the 
Nigerian Ministry of Education. 

Dean Ristuben graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, 
Minnesota. He earned his M. A. degree from the University of South 
Dakota and his Ph.D. dgree from the University of Oklahoma in 

Ristuben is a member of the American Association of University 
Professors, the American Conference of Academic Deans, the 
American Historical Association, and the Organization of 
American Historians. 

Very active in his community, he has served as Chairman of 
Dialogue Teams for the Tacoma Area Urban Coalition, Director at 
Large of the Washington State United Nations Association, and as 
Secretary and Vice-President of the Hope Lutheran Church in 

Dr. Ristuben has received recognition through several Faculty 
Growth Awards at PLU. He was named Washington State's Out- 
standing Young Man of the year in 1964, and was a national finalist 
in the White House Fellows Competition. 

The Administrative Team 

Ronald Kragthorpe 

Dean Ronald Kragthorpe will be inaugurated on October 27, 
along with President Mathews and the rest of the administrative 
team, as Dean for Student Affairs. Kragthorpe has an impressive 
record behind him as a member of the CLC administration. 

To start with, Kragthorpe organized a new congregation in 
Spokane, Washington and served as its pastor. He also served as 
President of one denominational and one interdenominational 
ministerial association from 1958 to 1962, just after receiving his 
Master's in Divinity from Northwest Lutheran Theological 
Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

After that, Kragthorpe moved on to serve as a minister in Liberia 
for the Lutheran Church from 1962 to 1966. While there, he again 
orgainzed a new parish in a small industrial town. He also worked 
with some Peace Corps volunteers and local community leaders to 
found a Community Center and a Well Baby Clinic, which are still 
being run by the local people. 

Kragthorpe's most impressive accomplishments come for the 
period of 1966 to 1972 when he was at the Uni verstiy of California at 
Davis, just before coming here. While there, he was Assistant Dean 
of Men and Director of Student Activities. He was also on the board 
of Diogenese House, a drug crisis center, the Board of Suicide 
Prevention, and the General Plan Review Committee for the City of 

These are just a very few of Dean Kragthorpe's impressive 
qualifications and CLC is definitely honored and enhanced by his 
presence here. 

Mark Mathews 

ark Mathews will be inaugurated as the fourth president of 
California Lutheran College on October 27, 1973. 

The inauguration is long overdue, as he has been president since 
1972. However, this delay was made at Mathews' request. In 
keeping with his philosophy that administration is a team effort, he 
chose to wait until a complete team could be installed. 

Mathews expressed this philosophy by saying, "I think the team, 
and all which that means in terms of expertise from each of us can 
do so much more than any of us can do as a man." 

Mark Mathews was born on October 3, 1926 in San Diego. He is 
married to Jean Benefiel Mathews. They have four children and 
reside in Westlake Village. Mathews enjoys tennis, travel and 
music and is an amateur singer. He is an active member of Sfcy 
James Presbyterian Church in Tarzana and has served as an 
Elder, Coordinator of Counseling and as advisor of the College 
Fellowship group. 

Dr. Mathews was educated locally. He holds a Bachelors of 
Science in Finance from UCLA, a Master of Science in Estate 
Planning also from UCLA and a Doctor of Business Administration 
from USC. 

His teaching experience has also been local. For a total of 
seventeen and one half years he has taught Business Management 
at San Fernando Valley high school, LA Valley College, UCLA and 

Mathews has also worked simultaneously as Management 
Consultant for IBM and Lockheed, as Securities Analyst for B.J. 
Van Ingren and for the H&M Corporation as Purchasing Agent and 
in Hotel Management. 

When Mathews came to CLC in the fall of 1970 to be the depart- 
ment chairman of Economics and Management he came well 

The year he came to CLC was the year of deep financial dif- 
ficulties. Mathews was fully cognizant of the fact, but he came 
because there was something missing in his life. What was missing 
was involvement with students and participating in the full 
development of students. To him this is what CLC stood for, and he 
couldn't stand to see something so right be wiped out for lack of 

It was during this time that Mathews became friends with 
Maurice Knutson, then Vice-president and the man that is credited 
with saving CLC. Knutson, who was Acting President briefly in 
1971, then asked Mathews if he would consider being a candidate 
for acting president. Because his wife had just broken her back and 
because he hesitated to give up teaching and contact with students, 
he refused. However, two weeks later, when Knutson announced 
his resignation and his plan to turn the search for a president over 
to the churches, Mathews reconsidered. 

On February 1, 1972 he became Acting President and after a 
change in the college bylaws allowing a non-Lutheran President, he 
was asked to become President in July 1972. 

The theme of the inauguration is "The New Covenant," and to 
Mathews this means rededication. It is the rededication of a new 
administration to students and faculty, people working together 
creatively for a good cause. It is this cause, Mathews feels, that is 
the best education.

Ronald Kragthorpe 

Dean Ronald Kragthorpe will be inaugurated on October 27, 
along with President Mathews and the rest of the administrative 
team, as Dean for Student Affairs. Kragthorpe has an impressive 
record behind him as a member of the CLC administration. 

To start with, Kragthorpe organized a new congregation in 
Spokane, Washington and served as its pastor. He also served as 
President of one denominational and one interdenominational 
ministerial association from 1958 to 1962, just after receiving his 
Master's in Divinity from Northwest Lutheran Theological 
Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

After that, Kragthorpe moved on to serve as a minister in Liberia 
for the Lutheran Church from 1962 to 1966. While there, he again 
orgainzed a new parish in a small industrial town. He also worked 
with some Peace Corps volunteers and local community leaders to 
found a Community Center and a Well Baby Clinic, which are still 
being run by the local people. 

Kragthorpe's most impressive accomplishments come for the 
period of 1966 to 1972 when he was at the Universtiy of California at 
Davis, just before coming here. While there, he was Assistant Dean 
of Men and Director of Student Activities. He was also on the board 
of Diogenese House, a drug crisis center, the Board of Suicide 
Prevention, and the General Plan Review Committee for the City of 

These are just a very few of Dean Kragthorpe's impressive 
qualifications and CLC is definitely honored and enhanced by his 
presence here. 

Mark Mathews 

Dr Mark Mathews will be inaugurated as the fourth president of 
California Lutheran College on October 27, 1973. 

The inauguration is long overdue, as he has been president since 
1972. However, this delay was made at Mathews^ request. In 
keeping with his philosophy that administration is a team effort, he 
chose to wait until a complete team could be installed. 

Mathews expressed this philosophy by saying, "I think the team, 
and all which that means in terms of expertise from each of us can 
do so much more than any of us can do as a man. " 

Mark Mathews was born on October 3, 1926 in San Diego. He is 
married to Jean Benefiel Mathews. They have four children and 
reside in Westlake Village. Mathews enjoys tennis, travel and 
music and is an amateur singer. He is an active member of St\ 
James Presbyterian Church in Tarzana and has served as an 
Elder, Coordinator of Counseling and as advisor of the College 
Fellowship group. 

Dr. Mathews was educated locally. He holds a Bachelors of 
Science in Finance from UCLA, a Master of Science in Estate 
Planning also from UCLA and a Doctor of Business Administration 
from USC. 

His teaching experience has also been local. For a total of 
seventeen and one half years he has taught Business Management 
at San Fernando Valley high school, LA Valley College, UCLA and 

Mathews has also worked simultaneously as Management 
Consultant for IBM and Lockheed, as Securities Analyst for B.J. 
Van Ingren and for the H&M Corporation as Purchasing Agent and 
in Hotel Management. 

When Mathews came to CLC in the fall of 1970 to be the depart- 
ment chairman of Economics and Management he came well 

The year he came to CLC was the year of deep financial dif- 
ficulties. Mathews was fully cognizant of the fact, but he came 
because there was something missing in his life. What was missing 
was involvement with students and participating in the full 
development of students. To him this is what CLC stood for, and he 
couldn't stand to see something so right be wiped out for lack of 

It was during this time that Mathews became friends with 
Maurice Knutson, then Vice-president and the man that is credited 
with saving CLC. Knutson, who was Acting President briefly in 
1971, then asked Mathews if he would consider being a candidate 
for acting president. Because his wife had just broken her back and 
because he hesitated to give up teaching and contact with students, 
he refused. However, two weeks later, when Knutson announced 
his resignation and his plan to turn the search for a president over 
to the churches, Mathews reconsidered. 

On February 1, 1972 he became Acting President and after a 
change in the college bylaws allowing a non-Lutheran President, he 
was asked to become President in July 1972. 

The theme of the inauguration is "The New Covenant," and to 
Mathews this means rededication. It is the rededication of a new 
administration to students and faculty, people working together 
creatively for a good cause. It is this cause, Mathews feels, that is 
the best education.

Kasten Represents CLC at 
Church Music Seminar 

James Kasten, a student at 
California Lutheran College, 
represented CLC at the thirteenth 
annual International Church 
Music Seminar October 3-7 at 
Roanoke College, Salem, Va. He 
was a member of the eleventh 
select choir composed of 
vocalists from thirty-two 
Lutheran college choirs in North 

Kasten is majoring in music 
and plans to attend the Univer- 
sity of the Pacific, Stockton, to 
receive a degree in music 

The church music seminar is 
sponsored annually by Lutheran 
Brotherhood, Minneapolis-based 
fraternal insurance society. The 
Society provides an all-expense 

paid music scholarship to one 
representative from each of the 
thirty-two Lutheran senior 

Through its first decade, the 
musical gathering has gained an 
international flavor through the 
participation of noted musicians 
from Europe and other parts of 
the world. This year the guest 
conductor was Professor Eber- 
hard Popp of Detmold, Germany, 
who is organist and director of 
the Martin Luther Kantorei in 

The general theme of this 
year's seminar was "Church 
Music — Old and New." Dr. 
Theodore Hoelty-Nickel of 
Valparaiso University, 
Valparaiso, Ind., was chairman. 

T.P. Around the World 

Next time you walk into the 
restroom, thinking resentfully, 
"Darn it! There's no privacy at 
college. All those people out there 
are listening to me here in the 
bathroom," remember these 
next few paragraphs and reflect 
on how lucky you really are. 

If you were to go to the head in 
Mexico, you would pay a few 
centavos for the sandpaper— I 
mean toilet paper— and then 
wade your way to the toilet. You 
would keep your eyes on the 
ceiling in order to keep your food 
in your stomach. 

When you ask for the restroom 
in England, you will be shown to a 
lounge where you can rest 
peacefully until you remember 
that what you really want is the 

In Ireland, the texture of your 
T.P. will be astonishingly similar 
to Saran Wrap. 

In Austria, you will have plenty 
of room in the bathroom to pace 
the floor while trying to figure out 
how to flush the thing. When you 
realize that all you had to do was 
locate the practically invisible 
handle in the deep recesses of the 
tank, and yank it up as hard as 
you can, you will feel like a 
typical, foolish American tourist. 

Ven you go potty in Germany, 
you vill pay to enter toilet. You 
vill pay for toilet paper. You vill 
pay for paper towels for hands. 
And you vill pay to leave. 

In Switzerland, you will have 
quite a wait (depending on the 
altitude) between the time you 
enter the toilet and the time you 
are able to flush it. Make good 
use of your time. Their toilet 
paper makes excellent 
stationery. Write a friend at CLC. 
And tell him how much you miss 
the normal days when all that 
was lacking in restroom 
relaxation was a little thing like

involve each portion of our 
college community in a collective 
and unifying experience. 

"The logistics of planning the 
Inauguration is awe inspiring. 
There might have been serious 
problems of organization had not 
such outstanding persons 
assisted in directing each phase 
of the Inauguration week," 
praised Steepee'. "The graphics 
developed by Mr. Slattum are 
first class. The musical con- 
tributions by Dr. Zimmerman 
and Professor Ramsey are ex- 
cellent, and the overall coor- 
dination by Don Hossler is 
exemplary. John Dilkes put in 
many late hours to make the 
event possible, as did students 
Taffy Walker, Dan Ramsey, and 
Dr. Buth." 

"There seems to be more 
confidence or more energy 
available for looking ahead. 
There is a recovery of confidence 
of what we have to offer in terms 
of education at CLC. It is of 
value," expressed Swanson. "We 
have learned to be humbled, in a 
good sense, to realize that we are 
a college, we are teachers, we are 
related to the church, and we 
have all the struggles of a small 
college, but what we do is worth- 

Pastor Swanson remarked, "It 
feels very good to look at the 
college with the certainty that we 
are doing something valuable, 
that is good for the church, that is 
good for the Kingdom, and that is 
good for the people." 

"Virtually every aspect of the 
college's life shows a dynamic 
upward thrust this year; church 
involvement, community 
recognition, enrollment, and 
academic standards," expressed 
Steepee. "The most significant 
aspect of this inauguration is the 
lift it gives to tfTe morale of all of 
us to see our strongest ad- 
ministrative combination in the 
history of the college launching 
us on an exciting adventure." 

Koininia Group Bgins 
Cultivating New Garden 

The student garden is now 
available for use by students who 
wish to grow vegetables or 
flowers. Located on the corner of 
Pioneer Street and Faculty Road, 
the garden Koinonia group is 
presently cultivating a number of 
small plots. 

The garden was started a year 
ago when Dean Kragthorpe had 
water pipes put in the field and 
the maintenance crew disked the 
field to soften the ground. Marsha 
Jensen was the sole user last 

Presently Marsha Jensen, 
Frank Maxim, Ruth Cady, Anne 
Bruher, Patty Hufford, Cathy 
Dreis, and Jeanine McKeown 
have garden plots and are 
growing radishes, lettuce, 
brocoli, beets, and poppies. The 

hoses, rakes, shovels, and hoes 
are provided by the school and 
kept behind the outdoor stage for 
anyone using the garden. 

The group also plans to get 
more hanging plants for the New 
Earth and to beautify the flower 
beds in front of Regents Court. 

Frank Maxim and Jeanine 
McKeown, co-facilitators of the 
group, are anxious that "the 
action of the group come from 
within rather than being imposed 
by the leaders. We are always 
excited to see each other's plants 
grow and are encouraged by one 

The garden is open to all 
students and faculty. If anyone is 
interested in obtaining a plot of 
land, they should contact Ruth 
Cady at 492-4888. 

Student Receives 
Minor Facial Cuts 

A pretty woman student, taking 
an evening stroll on campus, was 
assaulted by a unknown assailant 
at approximately 8:45 p.m. on 
Sunday, September 30. 

She followed a path that took 
her to the bridge in Kingsmen 
Park. It was dark, even though 
there were three light standards 
in the area. The light on the curb 
of Memorial Parkway was on, as 
was the one on the ramp leading 
to that street. However, the light 
by the bridge was out and the 
surrounding foliage blocked most 
of the other light sources. 

There were a few students in 
the area near the Gym, and an 
acquaintance of hers crossed the 
bridge on his way through the 
park. The bridge was quiet and 
secluded and she paused there for 
a moment. 

A noise to her left caused her to 
turn and look towards the Barn.. 
An attacker struck her on the left 
side of her jaw and scraped 
something across her face. She 
screamed and the assailant ran. 

Her roomates notified the RA 
on duty and the Head Resident in 
Alpha of the incident. The sheriff 
arrived and she filed an assault 
report through him. 

Later, another sheriff came to 
see her. "He wanted to make sure 
of the details on the report that 
was filed, and to see if I had 
anything to add to it."

After leaving CLC, Pantaz will 
return to USC where he has been 
working on management for 
three years. He is about to finish 
there also. After that, he expects 
he will just tackle other problems 
in other places. 

Summing up the CLC project, 
he feels confident that com- 
munication channels have been 
firmly established. He has more 
or less put the new ad- 
ministration on the right track. 
He concludes by commenting, 
"How can we possibly go astray 
when people like Buchanan and 
Mathews take the time to stop by 
our operations and ask 'is 
everything okay?' With that 
interest the only thing left is to 
'hurry up and get there.'

Women's Volleyball 
Lacks Experience 

Women's sports are involved in 
volleyball now until 
Thanksgiving. The girls have five 
practice games and seven league 
games scheduled against other 
small colleges, such as Whittier, 
Westmont, Azusa, LaVerne, and 
others. So far the women's 
volleyball team has not won any 
games. They have lost four 
practice games and one league 
game. The team appears to be 
improving, however. In the early 
part of the season they could not 
challenge the teams, but now 
they have been losing by scores of 
13-15 making it a closer game. 
Ms. Amundson stated that, "The 
team is beginning to gel. ..they 
are playing more as a team. We 
feel this is going to be our strong 
point, not just individual skills 
but teamwork." 

One explanation for the team's 
record is the fact that there are 
only a few returning sophomores 
and juniors to lend maturity and 
experience to the team. Sue 
Hebel, Marty Hall (last year's 
captain and most experienced 
member), Beth Doe, and Mary 
Anne Fioretti are among the 
returning players. The B team 
(Varsity) and C team (Junior 
Varsity) consist mostly of fresh- 
man. Ms. Amundson feels the 
lack of experience shows up when 
the score is close or tied and the 
girls tense up and aren't able to 
press through for the win. She 
feels that as they gain experience 
they will win games and handle 
pressure easily. 

Joyce Parkel has been hired as 
the volleyball coach this year. 
She is a full-time teacher at Rio 
Del Valle Junior High School in 
Oxnard andafso is a coach there. 

The team has been working on 
basic skills such as their serves 
and digs and practice every night 
of the week from 6:30-8:00, ex- 
cept when the gymnasium is 
occupied by musical groups, etc. 

Their games are played in the 
gymnasium at 7:30 p.m. The 
women are scheduled to play 
LaVerne at CLC October 29. 
Schedules of their games are 
posted in the gym. Their second 
league game was against Biola 
and Pomona College was played 
on October 24. They have a small 
loyal rooting section, but more 
supporters couldn't hurt this 
young team. For more in- 
formation contact Ms. Amundson 
or Ms. Parkel. 

All women sports have 
membership in two leagues. The 
SCWIAC (Southern California 
Women's Intercollegiate Athletic- 
Conference) is the local league to 
which CLC belongs and the 
national league is the AIAW 
(Association for Intercollegiate 
Athletics for Women ) There are 
three events in which women can 
compete throughout the year: in 
the fall— volleyball, winter- 
basketball, and spring— track 
and field. Ms. Amundson, the 
women's athletic director, hopes 
to add tennis and swimming 
when the necessary facilities are

the CLC varsity posted their third 
victory of the season over a tough 
Claremont-Mudd team, 10-0. 

The first half was marked by 
fine play from the Kingsmen de- 
fense and two long drives by the 
offense. On the two marches 
downfield the running of Gene 
Uebelhardt and Hank Bauer and 
the passing of Bill Wilson were 
impressive, but both drives were 
thwarted by fumbles inside the 
Claremont 5-yard line, recovered 
both times by the Stags. The 
Stags found the going tough 
against the Kingsmen defense as 
the Kingsmen would give up only 
hard-earned yards, forcing the 
Stag's punter to see a lot of ac- 
tion. The Stag's did mount one 
possible scoring effort in the first 
quarter that was stopped by Bob 
Park's fumble recovery on the 
Kingsmen 5 yard line. The end of 
the first half found the Stag's 
inside the Kingsmen 30 yard line, 
but Doug Rihn's interception 
stymied that threat. 

The Stags took the second half 
kickoff and appeared headed for 
a touchdown. But the defense 
came up with the stopper when 
Steve Spray recovered a Stag 
fumble on the CLC 9 yard line. 
Inspired by the defense's play, 
the offense took off on a 91 yard 
march, culminating in a 6 yard 
touchdown pass from Wilson to 
Butch Eskridge. Bob McAllister 
added the extra point and CLC 
led. 7-0. 

The defense again took over, 
aided by outstanding punting 
from Eskridge which forced 
Claremont on almost every 
possession to start deep in their 
own territory. Gaining possession 
of the ball in the fourth quarters, 
the CLC offense was able to add 
three more points to the score as 
Roger Martinson kicked a 32 yard 
field goal, making the score 10-0. 
The end of the game found the 
CLC defensive team holding the 
Stags for three plays inside their 
own 5 yard line, then on the fourth 
down Artie Green intercepted a 
desperation pass that insured the 
shutout for the defense. 

All told the CLC defense 
recovered three fumbles, in- 
tercepted two passes, and sacked 
the Stag quarterback four times 
while the offense churned out 
over 300 yards in total offense. 
For the Kingsmen, no one was 
seriously injured, although senior 
fullback Gene Uebelhardt was 
knocked groggy and saw little 
action in the second half. Junior 
linebacker Artie Green, the 
"Player of the Week" against 
Claremont, broke his left little 
finger late in the game but is not 
expected to miss any action. 
Interestingly enough. Green 
intercepted a CMC pass late in 
the game at the CLC three, 
moments after suffering the 
compound fracture. In addition, 
he deflected two other passes, 
while making eight tackles and 
assisting on three others. 

Sophomore halfback Hank 
Bauer had his best day of the 
season, rushing for 112 yards in 21 
carries, although he lost two 
fumbles inside the five-yard line. 
Soph quarterback Bill Wilson 
completed 11 of 23 passes for 127 
yards, including a six-yard 
scoring aerial to flanker Butch 

Cross Country Team 
Boasts 8-1 Record 

A strong CLC Cross-Country 
team, 8-1 on the year, will par- 
ticipate in several invitational 
meets over the next couple of 
weeks after racking up im- 
pressive dual, triangular, and 
quadrangular victories. 

Two meets will be held this 
weekend. The Mount San Antonio 
Junior College Invitational is 
tomorrow and the Chapman 
Invitational is Saturday. On 
November 3, the harriers travel 
to Biola to participate in the Biola 

"We are looking forward to the 
Orange and Biola Invitationals, 
and we are hoping to reach our 
peak for the district cham- 
pionships," noted Coach Don 
Green. The championships will 
be held at Biola College on 
November 10. 

Cal Lutheran has met both of 
the host teams of the meets this 
year, defeating Biola by 11, and 
Chapman by 25. 

The harriers bettered their 
initial 1-1 record by engaging in a 
triangular and dual meet on 
Saturday, October 6, at Biola 
against the home school and Cal 
Tech. Will Wester ran the course 
in 25:20 to establish a new record, 
and he also beat the second place 
Biola man by seven seconds. In 
the triangular meet, Cal 
Lutheran scored 27 points, Cal 
Tech scored 46, and Biola came in 
last with 47. Triangular scores 
don't count in the team record, 
but the dual meets do. The 
Kingsmen won both, beating 
Biola 22-33, and Cal Tech 20-35. 
These two victories established a 
3-1 team record for the year, the 
sole loss coming from Southern 
California College. e * 

CLC got its revenge in a 
quadrangular and dual meet the 
following week at Southern 
California College, when they 
won all three of their dual meets, 
beating SCC 27-28, Azusa Pacific 
26-29. and Cal Polv Pomona 15-40. 

Will Wester finished first, and 
again set a course record for the 
four miles of 18:56, a full 14 
seconds short of the former 
record of 19:10. Other finishers 
for CLC were: Ron Palcic— 4th, 
Ian Cumming— 6th, Peter 
Welch— 13th, Steve Blum— 14th. 
SCC kept some dignity as they 
topped the Kingsmen in the 
quadrangular scores, SCC 
scoring 36, CLC 38, Azusa Pacific 
47. and Cal Poly Pomona 99 

The team extended their record 
to 8-1 by beating both Cal State 
Dominguez and Chapman in a 
home meet last weekend. Wester, 
Palcic, Cumming, Welch, and 
Blum demolished the other teams 
by copping the first five places; 
in fact, Palcic tied Wester for 
first with a time of 30:00.2. CLC 
beat both teams 15-40, and won 
the triangular meet again scoring 
15 points against 41 points for 
Dominguez, and 86 points for 

"As a team, this is the finest 
cross country team in CLC's 
history," boasted Coach Green, 
and he added, "From week to 
week, everyone has shown real 

Green also noted tb/»t 
year's team has reversed 
year's record at this time. 

Before starting this impressive 
winning streak, CLC traveled to 
Las Vegas in late September to 
compete in the local Invitational 
meet. The harriers finished sixth 
out of the 11 teams with combined 
times of 162:30.2 minutes, a full 20 
minutes behind the winner, Cal 
State Northridge. Seven races 
were run with one Kingsman 
entered in each race. Wester 
finished 5th in the first race with 
a time of 20:11.6; Cumming took 
a 6th at21 :23.5 in the second race, 
and in the following races, Palcic 
took a 4th, Welch took a 9th, Blum 
a 9th, Pat Whittington took a 10th, 
and Greg Dineen an llth. 


"Bad" Henry Bauer turns upfield as 
QB Bill Wilson looks on. Bauer 
against the Stags had one of his best 
days as a Kingsmen, totalling another 
100 yard day.

I would like to question the 
priorities given to certain 
members of the college com- 
munity in regard to the food 
service, particularly on 

First I would question the fact 
(if not policy) that no one is 
allowed to eat in the cafeteria 
with bare feet, unless they helped 
lead the team to victory that 
morning. I do not see the 
distinction between myself and 
certain college celebrities, save 
perhaps a noticeable difference 
in size. 

Secondly, I would like to know 
why on Saturday, October 13, 
1973, while I sat at my table at 
breakfast toying with the idea of 
eating a "theoretically" fried 
egg, a boy of not more than 
twelve years of age walked past 
with a plate full of football 
training breakfast. Not for one 
minute do I begrudge the 
Kingsman team members a 
proper training breakfast to lead 
them to victory, but I was a little 
put out to see this young boy (I 
bear him no ill will either) who 
could have served the team as 
water boy, eating the same meal 
that I would be refused if I 
walked through the same line. 

And I think anyone who ate 
dinner on campus on Sunday, 
October 14 would agree that the 
meat??? we had for dinner that 
night could not even come close 
to the steaks the team has before 
every game. There was barely 
enough meat to feed the dogs 
around the tables, who seemed to 
benefit more from the meal than 
the students. 

1 appreciate the high cost of 
meat, and can understand the 
cost of feeding the entire student 
body a replica of the training 
breakfast, hold the scrambled 
eggs, but I think that maybe once 
that meal should end up inside of 
me instead of some young boy 
who "knows" somebody on the 
athletic staff or team. But who 
am I to deny him what I would 
only want for myself and my

For all of you who have read 
the book Future Shock by Toffler 
then you are obviously familiar 
with the concept of this term. To 
put it more plainly, the fact that 

man's physiological and 
psychological growth have not 
been able to keep pace with his 
technological and scientific 
advancements has resulted in the 
slate of mental confusion and 
disorientation termed "future 
shock". Along with the concept of 
"future shock" there is another 
ill that comes from man's rapid 
advancement and this is the 
concept of "cultural shock." 
When an individual or group of 
individuals is placed in an en- 
vironment which is diametrically 
opposed to their previous one 
(ethnologically speaking) they 
are subjected to the phenomena 
of "cultural shock". 

The reason this is of such 
importance is because it is most 
often manifested in college and 
university students who are 
caught up in an environment 
unlike their own. Most oi the 
minority students (especially 
black and brown) that have at- 
tended colleges in small 
suburban cities or backwoods 
towns have experienced some 
form of cultural shock. (This is to 
say nothing of the thousand of 
foreign students.) 

For example, take Columbia, a 
college which is only a stone's 
throw away from Harlem, or 
U.SC. which is right • in the 
middle of Los Angeles' inner city 
around 44th St. (And believe me, 
I know about 44th St. ) From what 
I have observed, most of the 
students who attend there who 
are from diverse backgrounds 
exhibit some signs of "cultural 

shock," some severe, some not so 
severe. It not only shows in their 
general attitude and appearance 
but it is also mirrored in their 
school work. It is quite evident 
that it is easier to operate and 
perform to one's maximum 
potential when one's en- 
vironment is familiar and secure 
— or even relatable to. It has 
been my belief (opinion ) for quite 
some time that "cultural shock" 
affects an individual's per- 
formance, psyche, and ability as 
much, if not more than anything 
else. So with all of this in mind 
are we going to allow one another 
to become lost and drift away into 
the abyss because if our inability 
to communicate outside of our 
ethnological molds. Ethnological 
holes? I hope not — think about it.

Senator Justifies 
Senate Decision 

Miss Trista, 

May by the Grace of God your 
heart may be filled with Peace 
and Love. 

First, let me state that I regret 
your resignation as Editor of the 
ECHO. Your contributions have 
been great and I greatly ap- 
preciate them. I would also give 
my overwelming appreciation to 
Barry for his outstanding service 
in bringing guest lecturers on 
campus. Other unnoticed persons 
are Dave and Ruth in the New 
Earth. Their continual efforts 
never cease to amaze me. 
Perhaps you should take a look at 
Vicki's schedule and the many 
hours which she puts in as 
President of the Spurs, not to 
mention the other services she 

What I am trying to say is: 
many, even hundreds, of people 
on this campus work twenty 
hours a week plus, to improve, to 
nourish, to help, to enrich, to 
better and to love this campus as 
well as the faculty and ad- 
mi n i s t ra t ion , withou t 
remuneration in terms of money. 
Sure, you're (sic) experience, 
your knowledge and your love for 
the ECHO is worth paying, but so 
is Dave and Barry and Ruth and 
Vicki. Personally, paying the 
secretary of the ASB could be 
discussed. However, how are we 
to pay back the priceless hours or 
hand work put in by the vast 
majority of others? 

Thirteen members of the 
Senate were at the meeting you 
mentioned, of the other three, two 
were sick and one was out of 
town. The remaining thirteen 
voted upon the motion that you 
should be paid some amount. 
Since it was a vocal vote and not a 
hand count, no one knows how 
many voted. According to the 
President Protem it was 
negative. I was one such member 
whose vote was not for or against. 
My reasons are these: 1) I could 
not see that payment should be 
made to the editors unless we are 
to pay the others who devote 
twenty hours of hard work plus to 
our school, and 2) I could not see 
letting you go unnoticed since I do 
realize your value, position and 

With God's help, I pray that we 
may govern the college Student 
Body as best as possible. We did 
our best even if we may not have 
pleased some. 

I know that you will continue to 
work with us to promote higher 
standards for the school and the 
paper. Thank you for not giving 
up hope. 

Regretful of your resentment 
and sincerely hoping your love,

Also, I suggest you check your 
facts before you write next time, 
since the student assistants in the

Barb Borneman are paid through 
student employment for the time 
they dedicate there. 

I would also take opposition to 
your justification. Since when 
was the neglect of one area 
considered good cause to neglect 
another? Your argument is the 
equivalent of saying that if we 
can't please everybody, then we 
won't please anybody. 

Finally, I would point out to you 
that the action taken by the 
Senate allowed your second 
alternative to become a reality, 
that is, the publications' editors 
will continue to go unnoticed 
despite their value, position and

suggest that you check your

I would also like to talk with 
your managing editor on the 
subject of Christian ethics. I 
would like to find out where in the

refraining from such catchy

feel that any more of my money

suggest, therefore, that you 
endeavor to have the question put 
to a vote before the general 
students. In this I would back you

Student Replies 
to Evidently . . . 

Dear Editor, 

The topics I would like to 
discuss include the editor, ef- 
ficient reporting, and Christian 
ethics. This is in response to the 
"comic" editorials published in 
last week's paper. 

The first thing I would like to 
point out is that of the total ASB 
budget of $22,000 plus, the 
publication commission receives 
$13,000 plus, over half the total. It 
was suggested that if the editors 
wished to be paid they could draw 
from that budget. This seems to 
have been rejected. 

It should be noted that when 
comparing the posts of editors to 
that of secretary of the ASB you 
forgot a major item. This is that 
the secretary of the ASB can be 
fired at any time at the discretion 
of the Senate, but the editors are 
beyond their jurisdiction. Once 
appointed the Senate has no 
authority to dismiss these 
editors, and this seems grounds 
enough not to allocate their funds 
for something over which they 
have so little control. 

It should also be noted that the 
application for editor contained a 
clause that stated that payment 
for editors might not be awarded. 
It seems to me that the conditions 
were spelled out, and only 
exhibits irresponsibility to accept 
a post and then resign. 

It also seems to me that every 
honest reporter stirs up trouble. 
The fact that they see a wrong 
and write about it is a fact of life. 
I should wonder then, why the 
complaints about the lack of 
compliments from the Senate 
when, deserving it or not, they 
get a bad write-up in the paper, 
which is a common occurance. 
It should be pointed out to you 
that when only two or three 
Senators speak out on a point that 


Out of the $13,000 allocated for 
the publications, over $8,000 has 
already been spent for LAST 
year's Campanile, and no one this 
year has any control over that 

Of the remaining monies, the 
ECHO has been allocated $4,000, 
a full $420 LESS than last year's 
budget. The ECHO is one of the 
few, if not the only, areas of ASB 
funding that has received a 
cutback over last year's funds. 
It is from this already trimmed 
budget that Mr. McGee is 
suggesting that we pay the editor. 
Also, the editors of the 
publications can not only be fired 
by the ASB Senate like the 
secretary, but they can also be 
dismissed by the Student 
Publications Commission. Thus, 
they are under more rather than 
less control by the ASB govern- 

Although there was indeed a 
clause in the application for 
ECHO editor that stated that 
there might not be payment, 
there were also verbal 
assurances by the commissioner 
that every effort would be made 
to obtain enumeration for the 
editor. In view of this, and in view 
of the fact that the ASB govern- 
ment was expecting a surplus 
that they did indeed receive, I do 
not think that it was "irrespon- 
sible" to accept the position 
expecting some type of 

Also, I suggest that you check 
your sources. In the voice vote 
that was held in the Senate, there 
were thirteen members present. 
The vote went like this: one for 
paying the editors, two against 
paying the editors, ten ab- 

Finally, it is evident that Mr. 
McGee did not appreciate the 
attempts at humor in my 
editorial. To this 1 can only say 
that when we can no longer laugh 
at ourselves, then we are in sorry 
shape indeed.) 

Student Supports 
ECHO Editor 

Dear Editor. 

This letter is in response to 
your notice of impending 
resignation which appeared in 
the October 12 issue. I would like 
to comment on the recent cir- 
cumstances and propose a 

First, I am sympathetic to the 
conflict between student 
newspapers and student 
government, having been in- 
volved with both in high school. It 
seems to me that the govern- 
ment, no matter how sincere, is 
usually uninformed about the 
complexities and work involved 
in putting out a newspaper. 

This ignorance is extremely 
clear when one realizes the 
number of abstentions (10 out of 
13 present) on the vote of whether 
to pay the editor of the ECHO for 
her services. 

I would suggest that if there are 
that many people who do not 
know the particulars of the 
motion, it should be tabled so as 
to afford time for further in- 
vestigation. The Senators should 
be aware that, as elected 
representatives, it is their duty to 

take a stand on issues rather than 
to remain passive and unin- 

In my opinion, the newspaper is 
too vital a service to the school to 
debase it in quality for almost 
nonexistant financial reasons. I 
have personally discovered that 
Trista Ann Tyson, the current 
editor, is the most qualified 
person available to head the 
paper by virtue of her experience 
and journalistic ability. By 
refusing to pay her and in so 
doing force her from the job, the 
Senate has deprived itself of a 
quality paper. 

I am being perfectly honest 
about this claim, for if Tyson 
resigns as editor, the work of 
editorship will be taken over by 
the journalism class. I do not 
mean this as a slanderous 
remark against the class, but 
such a set-up would not produce 
as good a paper because of the 
lack of experience and jour- 
nalistic know-how. 

In closing, I would like to urge 
the reinstatement of the 
editorship as a paid position (I 
would suggest $500, even this 
figure being well below ac- 
ceptable standards), for I am 
sure that all students and faculty 
want a high quality newspaper.

Evidently. . . 

This Could Be 
the Last Time 


In these days of rededication and reaffirmation, I regret that I 
too cannot enthusiastically commit myself to the responsibilities of 
my position as editor of the ECHO. Instead, I must contemplate the 
possibility that this may be my last issue as editor. 

I've put my all into this issue (over twenty hours just in reading 
and revising stories), and I know I will be proud of it, but I am 
saddened to realize that it is not the best it could possibly be and 
that I -may never be given the opportunity to make it the best 

We've had a good staff going so far this year, and with a little 
more training and experience they would amaze you with what 
they could do, but to do it they needan editor who has time to spend 
teaching, advising and unifying. Because I must soon seek em- 
ployment to fulfill my financial obligations to the college this task 
has become impossible for me. 

There is only one alternative to my resignation and that would be 
for the ASB Senate or the Student Publications Commission to 
allocate funds for a salary for the editor. 

I have asked the Student Publications Commission to consider 
this, but as yet have had no notification as to any action taken by 
them. I do not wonder at their hesitation, since I am asking that 
they allocate funds from a budget that has already been cut bv over 

The Senate action still amazes me however. From a budget that 
is larger than it has ever been and is more than was originally 
anticipated and with a surplus of almost $3000, the Senate cannot 
see clear to allocate $250, or one-twelfth of the surplus, as a salary 
for the ECHO editor. 

I think the Senate knows that they have me over a barrel. I love 
my work on the newspaper and would not give it up for any but the 
most necessary reasons. To be honest, I would probably be willing 
to work for nothing if it were financially possible for me to do so, 
but it is not. 

At this point, I have very little alternative but to sit tight and hope 
that things work out for the better. I have fought the good fight, and 
can only pray that it has been to some avail. 

If this is indeed my last issue, I would like to thank both those who 
were with me and those who were against me who helped to make 
the ECHO a better paper.

Possibilities and Problems 
Intrigue Pastor Kindem 


The Reverend Roald Kindem, 
vice-president for development, 
came to CLC from Albert Lea, 
Minnesota, where he had served 
as senior pastor at the Grace 
Lutheran Church for eight years. 

Kindem first became in- 
terested in CLC because of the 
problems and great possibilities 
he saw here. At a request from 
President Mathews, and after 
being approved by the Board of 
Regents, Kindem came with the 
feeling that he "could make a 
definite contribution in higher 
education in relating the work of 
CLC to the churches of the 

"Handles fund-raising" 

The Development Office 
carries the task of fund-raising 
for CLC. Last year the college 
received over $1,000,000, and this 
year the development staff must 
raise $671,000 to balance the 1973- 
74 operating budget. 

The Development Office is also 
in charge of public relations, and 
therefore must go out into ^the 
church-related public to enhance 
the image of CLC. They do this in 
various ways. 

"Representative in churches" 

Each Sunday, President 
Mathews, Kindem and others go 
out into the congregations in a 
five state area, and deliver 
sermons on behalf of CLC. 
Kindem commented on this work, 
it shows we are interested in 
churches and their support. We 
believe in getting people involved 
in visiting our campus, because 
involvement always precedes 

support." In this way the story of 
CLC is made known around the 

Recently Kindem addressed 
250 pastors of the LCA at an 
annual retreat held in Monterey. 
He also participated in a three- 
day pastoral conference with 275 
clergymen of the ALC at a Palm 
Desert meeting. Kindem just 
recently played host to the 
Augsburg Publishing House band 
in Minneapolis. Kindem and his 
staff in the Development Office 
also host various business groups 
on their visits to CLC. 

The Development Office has 
also been running a family 
financial planning seminar which 
is being headed by George 

"Helps start home" 

During his parish ministry in 
Montana, Kindem was in- 
strumental in starting the 
Lutheran Home of the Good 
Shepherd, a nursing facility for 
the aging. 

He has written a devotional 
booklet, and has had articles 
published in the Lutheran 
Standard and Kvent Magazine, 
and also has an article in the 
September 1973 issue of Christ in 
Our Home. 

The Kindem family, consisting 
of ten members, is very in 
terested in sports. They have o .. 
child playing Pop Warner foot- 
ball, two playing soccer, one on 
the high school water-polo team, 
and one works as a junior 
counselor for the YMCA. They 
also have two children attending 
St. Olaf College.

The tenth annual Homecoming 
Queen and her court were 
crowned tonight at the coronation 
in the CLC Gym by last year's 
Queen and graduate Lisa Kirmo. 
The theme is "Those Were the 

The girls advanced through 
nominations held last week, and 
also through an election on 
Wednesday. Besides the in- 
troduction of the court, the dif- 
ferent class presidents were also 
introduced. Entertainment was 
provided by the CLC Alumni 
choir 'The Californians" who 
sang popular songs and per- 
formed skits. 

Presently, a reception for the 
Queen and her court is taking 
place in the CUB. Refreshments 
will be served. 


Later tonight, after the gym 
has been cleared of all the 
coronation decorations, the 
Alumni All-Stars will face our 
Varsity Basketball team with the 
game starting at about 9:30 p.m. 
At halftime, the Cross-Country 
and Football squads will be in- 

A convocation and Mexican 
dinner were held earlier today. 
Also taking place this week in line 
with the Homecoming festivities 
were the Freshman and 
Sophomore football game which 
was held on Thursday afternoon 
and referred by the Juniors and 
Seniors, and the showing of 
"Yam-Yad" films in the gym 
that night. 

Saturday's festivities start at 
9:30 a.m. with faculty judging of 
dorm decorations and awarding 
of prizes to the winners. Un- 
fortunately, Mountclef voted not 
to participate in this event. 
"Pre-game contests" 

Following the judging will be a 
variety of pregame amusements 
for the students, such as Cart 
Races, Skateboard Races and 
Hoola-Hoop Contests. The winner 
of the cart race will be given $15 
and consolation prizes will be 
awarded to the runners-up. 

While the races and contests 
for the students are going on, 
Alums will be gathering in the 
fire circle for reunion purposes. 
Class displays will add beauty, 
and the class of '68 will be holding 
their five year reunion. 

All alumni, faculty, and staff 
will be enjoying a luncheon at the 
Holiday Inn in Newbury Park 
from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 
Guests will be the Queen and her 
court; Eric Shafer, President of 
the Alumni Association, and the 
Homecoming Committee which 
is headed by Shirley Fugate, Al 
Kempfert of the Development 
Office, and Dean Ronald 
Kraglhorpe. Tickets can be 
purchased at the door. While this 

is going on, students will as usual 
be enjoying the fine fare of the 

"Football against SLO" 

After the get-together ends, the 
Alums will return "en masse" for 
the football game between our 
Varsity Eleven and the team 
from California Polytechnic at 
San Luis Obispo. According to Al 
Kempfert, there is a good 
possibility that Alumni may 
purchase the $3 reserved seats 
for only two dollars. 

The spirit squads will give 
some new yells and distribute 
shakers and clickers to the 
crowd. The game starts at 1:30 
p.m., and plans have been made 
for the Queen and the Princesses 
to ride around the field at half- 
time, the Queen in a Cadillac, and 
the Princesses in Volkswagons. 

A photographer will be on hand 
at the Alumni reception after the 
game to take pictures for anyone 

interested in buying them. Mr. 
Kempfert believes that two 5x7's 
embossed in gold frame can be 
obtained for $3.75. The reception 
will be held in a suite at a major 

"Dancing to Mag Wheel" 

"Mag Wheel and Lug Nuts", a 
group that plays out of the Ice- 
House in Pasadena and performs 
at a large number of high schools, 
will be entertaining the dance- 
goers, playing to the theme "40's 
and 50's." Shirley Fugate 
believes that the group is 
currently taking over the con- 
tracts of "Shanana" and "Flash 
Cadillac". The dance will take 
place from 8:00 p.m. to midnight. 

The finale of this year's 
Homecoming Week will be the 
Worship Breakfast to be held in 
the Fire Circle at 11:00 a.m. on 
Sunday. Pastor Swanson will lead 
services, and the talk will be 
given by Dean Peter Ristuben. 

Mortvedt Speaks on 
Each Man's Miracle 


On Friday, October 26, Dr. 
Robert AL. Mortvedt, President 
Emeritus of Pacific Lutheran 
University, was guest speaker for 
the All College Convocation. His 
topic was "Everyone's Miracle- 
His Mind." 

The human mind is one of the 
greatest creations of the 
universe, perhaps the greatest. 
But man has yet to use it to its 
fullest. Most people go through 
their lives without knowing even 
one-third of the potential of their 
brain. If man just developed his 
brain he could do almost 
anything. He may even know no 

"Vive la difference" 

Mortvedt asserted the fact that 
man is very different from all 
other animals. First of all, man 
can know, learn, and remember. 

He can also think, hypothesize, 
and draw conclusions. These 
things are necessary for a human 
being to function. The mind is a 
fantastic thing, and not to be 

"Being a college student is one 
of the greatest things on earth," 
added Mortvedt. The en- 
vironment of the college campus 
is one of learning, and there are 
many resources readily available 
to the college student. In college, 
people are constantly learning. 
Even teachers are constantly 
learning. Mortvedt, quipped that 
few teachers ever win an 
argument with a college student. 
"Cash or culture?" 

However, most students would 
rather count cash than culture. 
They are too concerned with the 
material things in life and they 
forget all about the cultural

Inaugural Ceremony Addresses 
Emphasize Community Committment 

"A covenant is an agreement 
'. : between persons or parties. It 
; : can also mean a solemn compact 
; ; among members of a church to 
; ; maintain its faith. In a 

■ theological sense it can refer to 
| '■ the promises of God as revealed 
'. '. by the scriptures. The New 
; : Testament is often referred to as 
; : 'The New Covenant.' 

"What does a new covenant 
; ; mean at a Christian college at a 

■ time of inauguration? I believe it 
'. '. means that we who have ac- 
' '. cepted positions of responsibility 
; ! embrace the promises of God and 
; ; with great joy commit ourselves 
; ; to the momentous task of 
; providing an educational en- 
'< vironment where our students 
'. '. and faculty might search for 
: ; truth as they reach for their 
; ; highest potential." 

This is the message that 
; ; President Mark A. Mathews had 

• ■ printed in the program of his 
'. '■ inauguration to convey the theme 
'. : which prevailed throughout the 
; : inauguration ceremony held in 
; ; the CLC stadium on Saturday, 
; ; October 27, 1973. 

■ The idea of commitment was 

■ carried through in the message of 
iDr. Robert A.L. Mortvedt, 
'. ! President Emeritus of Pacific 
; ; Lutheran University. He urged 
;; President Mathews and his 
; Administrative Team, as well as 
•all the faculty and administrators 
' of CLC and all the noted guests, to 
', re-evaluate their commitments 
! and to be sure they were living up 
; to their commitments. 

"Importance of commitment" 

• Mathews re-emphasized the 

• importance of commitment in his 
'. address. He was also concerned 
; that the ceremony itself should be 
; : designed to include the entire 
; ; college community, in hopes that 
;the entire community would 

■ become involved with the new 
'. '■ covenant. 

The ceremony of inauguration 
; ; had representives from many 
; ; different aspects of the church 
t and college. Most important was 

■ • the inaugural party which in- 
'. '■ eluded Mathews and his Ad- 
i : ministrative team, and several 

[honored guests. The ad- 
; ; ministrative team included Rev. 
;Roald Kindem, Dr. Peter 
; Ristuben, Rev. Ronald 
i '■ Kragthorpe, Rev. Gerald K. 
: ! Swanson and Mr. Allen Dean 
: : Buchanan 

"Honored guests" 
Those members of the party 
; ; who presided over the ceremony 
included Rev. Dr. Gaylord Falde, 
Bishop, South Pacific District, 
ALC; Rev. Dr. Quentin P. 
Garman, Chairman of the Board 
of Regents, CLC; Dr. Robert A.L. 
Mortvedt. Rev. Dr. Richard 
Solberg, Director of the 

Department of Higher 
Education, representing Dr. 
Robert Marshall, President of the 
LCA; and the Rev. Dr. Carl 
Segerhammar, President, 
Pacific Southwest District, LCA. 

Rev. Dr. David W. Preus, 
General President of the ALC 
was unable to attend due to a 
family emergency. He was 
represented by Dr. Norman 
Fintel, Executive Director of the 
Board of College and University 
Services of the ALC. 

"Eighty colleges represented" 

In the audience were Members 
of the Board of Regents, 
Clergymen of the ALC-LCA, and 
the Alumni Association Board of 
Directors, as well as members of 
over eighty Colleges and 
Universities and Learned 
Societies representing their in- 

Also included in this gathering 
were the Board of Regents and 
Faculty of CLC. 

As the CLC Concert Band 
played an original work, com- 
posed directed and dedicated to 
President Mathews by Mr. Elmer 
Ramsey, the inaugural proces- 
sion walked out onto a windy CLC 
football field. 

The procession was led by 
nearly 50 CLC students carrying 
banners representing many 
churches of both the ALC and 
LCA. The banners were made by 
various churches in the synods 
and sent to the college to 
represent them at the service. 

The service, written by Rev. 
Gerald Swanson, was a well 
organized and executed event. 
The involvement of so many 
different parts of the college body 
helped fulfill Mathews' desire to 
have this inauguration one which 
would encompass and include the 
entire college community. 

Marigolds to be 
Presented at CLC 

The CLC Little Theatre will 
present the well known play and 
movie The Effect of Gamma 
Rays on Man In The Moon 
Marigolds on November 29, 30 
and December 1. Students are 
admitted free, but guests will be 
charged a nomminal fee. The 
play will begin at 8:15 p.m. 
Students are advised to reserve 
tickets as soon as they are 
available due to limited seating. 

Donald H. Simmons will be 
directing Marigolds. He has not 
as yet chosen an assistant 
director. He has cast the play as 
follows: Beatrice, Charlotte 
Rumph; Ruth, Vicki Blume; 
Tillie, Joyce McGreevy; Janice 
Vicery, Judy Standerferd; 
Nanny, Joyce Howar. 

June Drueding is understudy 
for Ruth and Sue Broas is un- 
derstudy for Tillie. 

Marigolds is centered in 
character rather than action, 
creating an atmosphere pregnant 
with static and suspense. The 
characters of Beatrice, Tillie, 
and Ruth are unique and com- 
plex. They carry the play com- 

The play yields an interesting 
study of the effects of a cynical, 
hard-core mother on an im- 
pressionable young teenager. 

The mother, Beatrice, has 
already pushed one daughter, 
Ruth, too far and is trying to stifle 
any growth in Tillie. 

Tillie has an unusual gift for 
science which wins her an award 
for outstanding work on mutated 

marigolds. The analogy is be- 
tween Tillie and the marigolds. 
Both are exceptional, both have 
been exposed to an unnatural and 
unhealthy environment. 

This bittersweet look at life has 
a delayed effect Some of the 
hidden implications in Marigolds 
aren't immediately apparent. 
The play is short, only an hour 
and a half, yet has the impact of a 
much longer play. 

German Students 
Host Open House 

Wilkhommen zu unsere Haus 
was the invitation extended to 
CLC students and faculty by the 
residents of the German House. 

Almost one hundred persons 
visited the House on October 30 
between 7 and 9:00 p.m. After a 
tour of the house, guests were 
treated to homemade cookies in 
the living room, which was 
decorated and draped in sheets 
for Halloween. 

The event was the cooperative 
effort of all twelve students living 
in the house. Ellen Zittinger, 
Resident Assistant, commented, 
"Some girls baked, some cleaned 
and some decorated. Everybody 

In addition to the Open House, 
the group, under the sponsorship 
of Frau Wichmann, has hosted an 
open house for German students 
and participated in a radio 
program which aired Sunday 
night, November 4.

of Growth at Retreat 

On October 19 to 21, the faculty 

and administrative staff came 

together for what Pastor 

Swanson described as an op- 
portunity "to discuss, share and 
think their responses as to where 
our community is and where we 
fit into the tradition from which 
we have come as a Lutheran 
college." The Lutheran Church in 
America has made available a 
chaplaincy grant to the college 
for creative purposes or the 
college would not otherwise have 
had resources 'to make the 
retreat possible. 

Pastor Swanson proposed a 
plan for two retreats for the 
faculty (next one in February) at 

Pear Blossom which is close to 
Palmdale in the high desert and 
the LCA responded. The retreat 
at a Benedictine house with 
supervision by Father Vincent 

The Order of Saint Benedict 
had its start as far back in the 
sixth century. They are an 
ecumenical group eager to be in 
association with people of dif- 
ferent religions. 

Father Vincent Martin was the 
resource leader for the retreat. 
The theme of discussion was 
"Communities of Growth within 
the Christian Tradition." He has 
had a unique and varied 
background enabling him to 
tackle this complex theme. 

Outstanding Unit Award 

The Air Force ROTC unit at the 
University of Southern California 
has won the Air Force Out- 
standing Unit Award in com- 
petition with 179 other detach- 
ments on college and university 
campuses throughout the nation. 

This is the first time USC has 
won this award in the twenty-six 
years that Air Force ROTC in- 
struction has been offered on the 
campus. It may also be the first 
time that a unit on the Pacific 
Coast has received one of the Air 
Force's highest unit awards.

commandant of Air Force ROTC,

Football Player 
Tackles Purse 


A CLC football player, using a 
unique forearm tackle, brought 
down a Thousand Oaks man 
suspected of stealing two 
women's purses on October 30 
from a shopping center laun- 

Sheriff's officers said Corky 
Ullman, 21, joined in chase after 
he heard a woman scream and 
saw a man running through the 
Conejo Village shopping center 
about 9:30 a.m. carrying a 
woman's purse. 

The suspect, Danial Robin 
English, 32, of 1710 Hillcrest 
Drive, was booked on two counts 
of grand theft. He was not 
seriously injured in the chase and 
resulting wrestling match with 
Ullman and another young man, 
Greg Griffin, 19, of Oxnard, who 
joined in the chase.

Fugett of Los Angeles (90057), 
commanding officer of the 234- 
cadet USC corps. 

The award was given for 
meritorious service from Nov. 30, 
1970, to Nov. 30, 1972. 

Phillips J. Copeland of Palos 
Verdes, a retired Air Force 
colonel who commanded the "USC 
unit during the early part of the 
award period, also took part in 
the ceremony. 

Dr. Paul E. Hadley of Glen- 
dale, associate vice president for 
academic administration and 
research at USC, who is the in- 
stitutional representative for 
ROTC on the campus, was also 
cited by Col. Fugett for his 
support of the Air Force 
program . 

Cited for its increased 
enrollment and production of 
commissioned officers during a 
time when ROTC participation 
was decreasing throughout the 
nation, the unit was also 
recognized for its academically 
sound curriculum, professionally 
relevant leadership training 
program, involvement with the 
academic community and its 
outstanding extracurricular 

Colonel Fugett said of the 
award, "We are quite proud of 
this recognition. It comes as the 
result of the work of a number of 
people, officers and enlisted, as 
well as the cadets who have 
participated in the program. It 
should be noted that much of the 
credit for this award should go to 
the administration of USC, for 
without their fine support and 
cooperation we could never have 
accomplished what we have." 

Members of the unit have 
become involved in a number of 
community activities and fund 
raising events. "Support of local 
Boy Scout troops has been one of 
our most successful and 
gratifying community 
programs," said Colonel Fugett.

Father Vincent Martin was 
born in Southern Blegium and 
traveled to China as a 
Benedictine monk. He came to 
the United States and received a 
Ph. D. in Sociology from Har- 

When St. Andrew's priory was 
expelled from China, Father 
Martin was instrumental in 
helping them settle in Southern 
California. In 1968-71 he studied 
at the Hebrew University in 
Jerusalem and is now working 
with the Commission on Dialogue 
between Christians and Jews. 

He also led one of CLC's 
Christian Conversations. He 
often leads retreats through 
monastic communities in United 
States and Europe. 

Pastor Swanson stated "He 
above all is a monk with his basis 
being a life of community 
prayer." Pastor Swanson feels 
that the life of the monastery

Two faculty members of each

a total of about 26 participants 
including their spouses. Four 
faculty members of each division

These are community enrich- 
ment retreats with people being 
brought together because of their 
vocations; however, Pastor 
Swanson stressed that business is 
to be left aside and time spent in 
being alone, worshiping, and 
reflecting together. It was an 
especially good time for a retreat 
since there are several new 
administrators. Pastor Swanson 
felt it would "allow people to 
have deep human experiences — 
to more quickly feel at home and 
in touch." The faculty joined the 
monks on Saturday night for 
worship and there was a 
Eucharist of the CLC community 
on Sunday morning. The idea of 
the retreat was to provide a time 
for fellowship and recreation 
through Christian sharing.

Dr. John Grinnell 

English Department 
Holds Boar's Head 

■ Inn November 5 

On Monday, November 5, the 
English Department hosted a 
coffee house and poetry reading 
in the Barn. 

Dubbed the "Boar's Head Inn," 
faculty and department 
assistants served free refresh- 

Dr. John Grinnell, a former 
CLC distinguished scholar in 
residence, was on hand for the 
evening's festivities. 

The entertainment commenced 
with Renaissance pieces per- 
formed by a quartet as refresh- 
ments were served to the near 
capacity crowd. 

Dr. Lyle Murley, acting as 
emcee for the evening, in- 
troduced Dr. Ted Labrenz, who 
read selections from two of his 
novels, one completed, the other 
"in progress, now in limbo." 

Labrenz was followed by Dr. 
John Grinnell reading some of his 
favorite poems, including Dr. 

Jack Ledbetter's "Home," Carl 
Sandburg's "Four Preludes on 
Playthings of the Wind," and 
E.A. Robinson's "Mr. Flood's 

Intermission, which followed 
Grinnell's reading, featured 
Gerry and Jan Swanson in a 
recorder duet with selections 
from Handel and Elizabethan 
and Shakespearian songs. 

Dr. Jack Ledbetter opened his 
section of the reading with a 
poem by John G. Niehardt en- 
titled "April Theology." Niehardt 
had died on the preceeding day at 
the age of 92. 

Ledbetter read a selection of 
his poetry, including "1-80," 
"Better Than Gospel," "How Do 
I See You Lady," and "Bad Piak 
(Uncle Drunkard)." 

Renaissance costumes sported 
by professors and department 
assistants added flavor to the 
annual event.

A fortunate group of Biology 
students are being treated to Dr. 
Nelson's new and interesting 
seminar entitled "Medicine 
Today" on Wednesday nights at 
7:30 p.m. This class is unique in 
that physicians and professionals 
in the medical field of the Conejo 
Valley lecture to the class and 
answer questions on their par- 
ticular specialty areas. 

Among those who have lec- 
tured are Dr. John Tomec, Dr. 
Leonard Akland, Dr. Michael 
Pardue, Dr. William Baumann, 
Dr. Jerome Ratzan, and Dr. Paul 

Dr. Tomec broadened the 
students' knowledge of the 
growing field of prosthetics 
which utilizes mechanized hands, 
knees, and artificial limbs. 

Dr. Leonard Akland, CLC's 
physician, presented a film of his 
missionary medicine work at a 
Lutheran Hospital in 

Madagascar. Dr. Akland was 
often the only doctor available for 
miles and treated tropical cases 
of malaria, tuberculosis, leprosy, 
schistosomiasis, cysts, 
aneurisms, and at night often 
pulled as many as twenty-four 
teeth from several patients, as 
there were no dentists. On Friday 
nights he would present 
preventive medicine films to the 

Dr. Pardue, a plastic surgeon, 
illustrated his work in recon- 
structive surgery, burns and 
accidents, skin cancers, and 
cosmetic surgery (face lifts, nose 
jobs, breast enlargement, etc.) 
Dr. William Baumann, a 
psychiatrist, pointed to clinical 
cases to explain his methods and 
demonstrated hypnosis on a 
student, which he uses clinically 
in therapy. 

Dr. Jerome Ratzan and Dr. 
Jack Klausen conducted a 
question and answer period on 
the obstetrics and gynecology 
field and Dr. Paul Ironside 




related his experiences in 
medical school and explained the 
field of peripheral vascular 
surgery (varicose veins, em- 
bolisms, etc.). 

Other doctors scheduled this 
year are: Dr. George Hubert, 
Cardiology; Dr. Ray Johnson, 
Dentistry; Dr. Robert De 
Stefano, Dermatology; Dr. Irwin 
Schoen, Pathology. 

Another seminar is being 
tentatively planned for next fall 
semester because of the 
tremendous enthusiasm from 
both the doctors and the students 
for the class. The Biological 
Sciences Department is grateful 
to the local physicians and 
surgeons who are establishing a 
scholarship for a student in the 
medical and allied health fields 
as a result of this class. 

Rusher Predicts Watergate to 
be Dead Issue in 76 

The Watergate affair will 
probably be a distant issue by the 
1976 presidential elections ac- 
cording to William Rusher, 
Publisher of the National Review 
who spoke at CLC on October 23. 

However, he pointed out that 
some effects would undoubtedly 
t be felt in the 1974 elections and he 
added that all incumbents, in- 
cluding Democrats, might feel 
the results. 

"Reagan as front runner" 

Rusher said Conservatives 
have been "trending" toward 
Governor Reagan for a quite 
awhile now and he sees him as a 
front runner among Republican 
nominees for the 1976 

Rusher, who had been asked to 
speak on current events, said that 
he would make a try at it 
although events have been 
changing so rapidly on the 
national level that it is difficult to 
interpret one event before it has 
been superseded by another. 
Rusher writes a syndicated 
column three times a week for 
approximately fifty newspapers 
and the rush of events has made 
it increasingly difficult to write 
columns that are still apropos 
when they are printed. 

Paoifio Trucking 

Company to be 
Performing in Barn 

Pacific Trucking Company, a 
new CLC-based rock band, will be 
performing in the Barn sometime 
during the next two weeks. 

The band performed at the 
Inaugural Ball in October. 

Members of the band are Eric 
Chun — keyboards, sax, flute; 
Marc Thomas — drums; Kirk 
Munchhof — guitar; Frank Blake 

— bass, string bass; Al Dellinger 

— trumpet; John Allen — 
trombone; Doug Kruse — 
trumpet; and George Carganilla 

— sax. 

Chun and Thomas, who formed 
the band, also compose. 

In Memoriam 


November 3, 1954 - -November 3, 1973 

Again today, 

As came before, 

A death my eyes behold. 

A moment's past, 

This was his last, 

Why must this tale be told? 

Darkness blinds his sun, 

A soul; death has won, 

Yet still, life goes on. 

— Olaf Olson 
In loving memory of Glen Phillips. 

Although he is not spiritually or 
politically a Nixon man, Rusher 
said he finds himself defending 
him at times because he 
disagrees so profoundly with 
many of his critics. 

"Hostile press" 

Nixon has had to combat a very 
hostile press throughout his 
administration and his political 
life Rusher said. One reason for 
this is that for the past thirty 
years America has been 
dominated intellectually by the 
liberal outlook. 

He pointed out that the 
Washington Press Corps has been 
largely of this mold and has 
assisted in "aggrandizing" the 
power of the executive office in 
the past thirty years. 

When that office became oc- 
cupied by an administration with 
whom they were "totally out of 
sympathy" and who directed 
part of that power against them, 
they literally were out to get their 
old enemy, Nixon. 

"Electronic eavesdropping" 

Rusher who said that he does 
not condone the Watergate affair, 
commented that the increased 
use of electronic eavesdropping 
was bound to come home to roost. 
The development of electronic 

politics was not something in- 
vented by the Nixon ad- 
ministration and he said it could 

as easily have surfaced during 
the Johnson or Kennedy ad- 
ministration. It has been used by 
the CIA in their covert operations 
and also by business and labor. 

Watergate might very well 
been a dead issue by this time if it 
had not been for the discovery of 
the tapes he said. 

"Nixon blew it" 

However, Rusher said that he 
felt Nixon probably damaged his. 
own case of executive privilege in 
regard to the tapes because he 
taped conversations in the first 
place, and so compromised the 

Nixon's latest decision to turn 
over the tapes to Judge Sirica 
however has kept the im- 
peachment forces at bay because 
he is no longer defying a court 

Rusher feels that the tapes in 
themselves will not reveal 
anything that damaging. He 
compared Nixon to Brer Fox 
chased by a pack of hounds bent 
on impeachment and said that at 
this point he felt Brer Fox was 
still a little ahead of the hounds. 

The CLC Troll appears to be of an un- 
usual breed that prefers young ladies 
(right) to nanny goats (left). 

Troll Hibernates in 
CLC Mail Rooms 


As winter sets in around CLC, as leaves fall from the decidous 
trees and there is a frosty nip in the air, (and I don't mean Terry) 
our thoughts turn to exciting days shushing down Mount Clef with 
the Ski Club or equally exciting evenings before the warm glow of 
an open fire as the National Legal Data Center burns brightly in the 
clean, crisp winter air. But what of our furry friends, the friendly 
yet fickle Trolls? 

As you may already know, hundreds of these rare and exotic 
creatures meet a grisly death annually at the hands of old man 

The U.S. Forest Service, always concerned with the welfare of 
our nation's "wildlife" began making emergency deposits of 
"tonic" or "firewater" around troll stomping grounds in an effort 
to stem the ever-increasing tide of these venerable vermin passing 
on to the great beyond touched by old Jack Frost. 

Alas, the ranger's valiant efforts were usually in vain. However 
they were not totally without merit. Though this "tonic," cleverly 
disguised in "Canadian Club" bottles, didn't save many troll's 
lives, it did make their passing a lot more fun. 

Fortunately for CLC, none of these measures will have to be 
taken to save our troll. I'm pleased to announce that he has set up 
temporary winter residences in the mail rooms at each of the 
dorms. He'll spend a few days in the Mountclef mail room, then 
jump over to Alpha, maybe a week in the faculty mail boxes, then 
over to Beta until spring springs and the outdoor life once again 

At this time there is one word of warning I would like to give 
students: When reaching into your mailboxes be careful not to 
reach in too far, lest a hairy-knuckled hand grasp your digits and 
perform some insidious deed. Perhaps it's been said best by the 
great Ewell Gibbons, stalker of the good life and gnawer of birch 
bark, "Many parts are edible."

Open House Hours Questioned Again ApoloQV 

The seeminelv annual Question approach the Student Senate with would presumably be more ! ^J § 

The seemingly annual question 

of lengthening dorm hours for the 

CLC campus has arisen once 

again this semester. 

The few days after the meeting, 
two students, Olaf Olson and Jeff 
Johnson circulated a petition for 
a change in dorm hours on their 
own initiative to acquire student 
signatures. Their petition was 
signed by over 420 students. The 
next step in their plan was to 


approach the Student Senate with 
this petition. 

At the Senate meeting of 
November 5, both the Mountclef 
proposal and the student petition 
were presented. The Senate 
considered both proposals and 
their decision was to encourage a 
meeting of Alpha, Beta, Mount- 
clef, McAfee and Kramer 
councils to decide jointly upon a 
set of hours. This set of hours 

would presumably be more 
representative of the people 
living on-campus as these people 
would all be represented and able 
to present their views. These 
people would be the primary 
persons affected by any change. 
A meeting of dorm councils is 
planned then, with the results of 
the meeting being presented to 
the Senate and, pending Senate 
approval, to the Administration 
for their acceptance. 




Plan Dinner \ Know Your Rights 


Next Friday, the residents of 
Kramer Court are hosting a 
progressive Thanksgiving dinner 
for the staff, faculty, and ad- 
ministration of the college. 

Scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m., 
the dinner will feature an in- 
ternational atmosphere, as each 
course represents a different 

The meal will begin in Kramer 
8 where beverages will be served 
in an English pub. 

Other countries represented 
will be Italy, Africa, Hawaii, 
China, Mexico, France, and 

After dinner, entertainment 
will be provided by the dorm 

Reg Akerson, the resident 
advisor, commented that "it is 
my desire that this be just 
another step in bettering the 
relationship and communication 
between the students and ad- 

He further remarked, "I, on 
behalf of the dorm, hope that the 
administration, faculty, and staff 
will make a special effort to 
support the dinner with their 

Donations will be taken at the 
dinner to help defray costs. 


As a newly instituted part of the ECHO, it is the purpose of this 
column to serve the needs and deal with the problems of students 
residing off campus. This is also a solicitation for your par- 
ticipation. Any items of concern to you, or any suggestions for other 
non-dormitory dwellers, will be greatly appreciated. They should 
be addressed to the KINGSMEN ECHO at its office in the CUB. 

A number of people are renting apartments or houses for the first 
time in their lives. Apart from the usual hassles about who does the 
dishes and who vacuums, there is the problem of dealing with your 
landlord. For instance, why hasn't he dropped by, on his way home 
to Olympus, to fix the leaky faucett that is causing your water bill 
to soar even higher than it already is? You should be aware of your 
landlord's responsibilities, as well as your own. First, scan your 
lease to find out if he is responsible for general repairs. Most land- 
lodrs are. Then, get on the stick and call him. If he lives out of town, 
send him a certified letter. If a problem that he should handle is 
costing you money, it is well worth the effort of coercing your 
landlord into action. 

For additional information about your rights and responsibilities, 
you may want to write to the National Tenants Organization, 425 
13th St. NW, Washington, DC. 20004. 

A small, but invaluable, investment you may care to make is the 
purchase of a manual or book written expressly for the tenant. An 
excellent guideline is published by McGraw-Hill Company. It- is 
How To Live Cheap But Good, a primer for people with high tastes 
and low incomes, by Martin Poriss. A graduate of Harvard, Poriss 
is extremely aware of many of the problems of college students. 
His book outlines everything from how to save money on texts to 
the complete workings of the inner sanctum of your toilet tank. He 
also provides information on furnishing, cooking, and purchasing. 
There are several appendices to the manual which describe such 
things as how to get your landlord to make repairs, or all about food 
storage. For a well spent $3.95, you will save yourself hundreds of 
hours of bother and quite a lot of bread. 

Worship Emphasizes Unity 


Eight hundred people gathered 
together in worship for Refor- 
mation Sunday held inside the 
gym. The service was designed to 
foster community fellowship. 

Members from six different 
Lutheran churches in the Thou- 
sand Oaks area gathered togeth- 
er with CLC for communion and 
to share in the celebration of the 

Pastors from the six churches 
as well as CLC pastors, worked 
together to present the service. 
CLC students carrying banners 
sent by Southern California 
churches also participated. Over 
eighty choir members from CLC 
and the community sang the 
service anthem under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Zimmerman. Mr. 
Ramsey led the brass section to 
compliment the well-balanced 
service. Some of the CLC women 

Mr. and Mrs. Bielke cut the rug at the 
Inaugural Bal 1 . 

served as ushers to insure the 
smooth procession of the service. 

When the Santa Ana winds 
from the day before settled, the 
congregation felt the intense 
heat, requiring them to use their 
bulletins as useful fans. Despite 
this flaw in the weather, the 
service accomplished its inten- 
tions; unifying the body of Christ 
as one, in praising his name. 

The Sacrament of Communion 
was given to the entire eight 
hundred people within fifteen 
minutes. Although not quite a 
miracle compared to feeding the 
five thousand, it served as a 
blessing in sharing the body and 
blood of Christ in the midst of 
such a festive event as the 

The Conejo Valley, a com- 
munity which twenty-five years 
ago was having trouble 
establishing one Lutheran con- 
gregation, now has six, with a 
possible seventh. The power of 
the one unifying body surroun- 
ding the CLC community was felt 
at this worship service. 

A New Covenant, the theme of 
the Inauguration, also was 
shared as a covenant with the 
community as a whole. Dr. 
Mathews and his team, who saw 
the need for community worship, 
made a reality during the Inaug- 

In the Inauguration Issue of the 

KINGSMEN ECHO published on

Ristuben to Speak at 
Homecoming Service 


As of late, it has come to my attention that many rooms are hav- 
ing problems, either with roommates, maintenance, or just plain 
old whatever it is. Since this is such a widespread dilemma, I have 
decided to lend my vast technical know-how, personal experience, 
and overall savvy to help straighten things out. 

One of the biggest hassles is, of course, the bathroom. Now you 
have to realize that the showers at CLC will only hold sixty-nine 
people and so, obviously, all the roommates can't take a shower at 
once. The thing to do is play an all-night game of old maid and keep 
rubbing out the loser until there is just one person left. However, 
this method is not recommended if your father is a polceman, or if 
you hate the sight of blood. 

But if you can manage to overcome this first petty annoyance, 
you now have to dispose of the bodies. Well, there's no way you can 
sneak them out of the dorms without being seen unless you wait till 
dorm hours when everyone is asleep, but if you've ever been in a 
room overnight with sixty-nine dead bodies you know that it starts 
to smell real bad. So the only other thing you can do is "down the 
drain." That is, if the toilet works. 

After you get all sixty-nine bods stuffed in, pull the chain (if 
you're one of the fortunate ones who has a lever instead, push it 
down) and stand back. No doubt your toilet will back up, and you'U 
have to get it fixed. Well, the easiest way to do this is to get a hold of 
your R.A. ; but he will only tell you to find the Head Resident, so 
skip that step. 

Now you don your backpack, a week's supply of food, and head 
out to find the Head Resident. Logically, you try the Head 
Resident's residence, but all you find is a note: "R.A on duty." 
When you get to that R.A. he can't help you either, because he is 
busy playing old maid. You can be sure that your Head Resident is 
not at the pool — and nobody else, either — so next you try the pool 
room (clever, eh?). 

And what do you know, there he is and so is everyone else. Alas, 
someone accidentally stuck a cue ball in his mouth, and he is 
unable to tell you where the maintenance men are. That's life in the 
big city, right? You'll just have to wait three or four years to get 
your toilet fixed. Fortunately, you have a fair amount of self- 
control, and you are pretty sure you can hang in there. Of course, 
you might try using a friend's toilet; after all, what are friends for? 

In the meantime, you can now take a shower in peace without any 
hassle. Turn on the water, and book an expedition to the North Pole. 
When you return, the water will either be warmed up (at least you 
would appreciate that it isn't frozen), or shut off. Whichever the 
case, your room will be flooded because there are no pipes under- 
neath the phony drain. 

Luckily, none of your outlets' work either, so you don't have to 
worry about electrical shock. Also, by this time the plumber has 
been located and is quickly on the scene to flush your toilet and 
drink up the flood. But just like everyone else these days, he is an 
undercover agent for the FBI and he books you for a flight to Sing 

You try to plead insanity on the basis that you go to CLC, but due 
to the Watergate mess the judges are no longer making exceptions 
for idiocy. Besides, there are lots of showers in Sing Sing, and you 
won't have any roommates, either. 

Next week, we will discuss rules, regulations, and penal systems 
(no, that's not V.D.) for those of you who don't have any cards to 
play old maid and need an alternate means to take a shower. 

Shall we dance? 

The Homecoming Worship 
Service will be held Sunday 
morning, 11:00 a.m. in the 
Gym/Auditorium. Dr. Peter 
Ristuben, Dean for Academic 
Affairs, will speak at the service. 

AMS to show Bullitt 

On Friday night, November 16, 
at 8: 15 p.m., AMS is sponsoring a 
showing of Bullitt in the Little 
Theatre free to all students. 

Bullitt is a fast, action-packed 
adventure starring Steve 
McQueen, Jacqueline Bisset, 
Robert Vaughn, Don Gordon, and 
Robert Duvall. 

"There are bad cops and there 
are good cops — and then there's 
Bullitt" depicts the story well. If 
Bullitt has ever heard of society 
standards or moral convictions, 
it doesn't show on him. He has his 
own unique style of handling a 
case and no one tells him how to 
do it, which creates some dif- 
ficulties with his superiors in the 
police force. 

Bullitt is the story of a hoodlum 
who has defrauded the un- 
derworld syndicate of millions 
and is being protected by an 

ambitious politician (Robert 
Vaughn) if he will be a star 
witness at a Senate sub- 
committee meeting on crime. 
The hoodlum has arranged to 
have a man impersonate him 
which causes his pursuers to 
become somewhat confused. The 
underworld, Bullitt, and the 
politician are all after the 
hoodlum with some surprising 
results in store for the viewer. 

Included in Bullitt is the 
famous chase scene through the 
San Francisco streets. It is 
described by Saturday Review as 
"most exciting fifteen minutes of 
cinema I've seen in I don't know 
how long." 

If you want to see a good cop 
and robber story with a strange 
twist from the norm, watch 

Student Opinion Sought 

The Concert/ Lecture Commission needs the response of the 
student body in regard to a proposed film class to be held here in 
the spring semester. The question is this; Should the Con- 
cert/Lecture Commission sponsor this film class? 

The argument for this series is that there are no theaters around 
the Conejo area that would show Bergman films. The film series 
would consist of eight films by the Swedish director, Ingmar 
Bergman and hit many areas of education such as: Drama, 
Religion, Art, Sociology, Psychology and English. 

There are two arguments against this film series. The first is 
financial. The cost of this series would be over $1000 and it is felt 
that not enough students would be interested in these films to 
warrant the cost. 

The second consideration is academic. It is felt that since this is a 
class, the cost should be borne by the department that is offering 
the class, in this case, the English Department. 

The response of the student body to this film series is needed to 
help the commission decide if this would be of value to the student 
body as a whole. Please refer all opinions and comments to Barry 
Ybarra, Mountclef Inn, Box No. 2580. 

Dean Ristuben brings to the 
pulpit at CLC his own vital sense 
of Christian witness and com- 
mitment. He has lived his 
vocation as an educator in the 
classroom, through the Peace 
Corps, as a Dean, and as a very 
active citizen. 

The Alumni Choir, under the 
direction of Dr. C. Robert Zim- 
merman, will provide special 
music. Each year CLC alums 
who have sung in the Concert 
Choir are invited to come back 
for this reunion. The organist will 
be Mr. Howard Sonstegard, also 
a CLC alum. 

Following the worship service 
there will be a continental break- 
fast served in the fire circle.

ASB Desk 

This column is being 
established to give the ASB of- 
ficers a place to discuss issues, 
explain their functions, and. in 
general, communicate with the 
student body at large. 


The Religious Affairs Com- 
missioner's duties vary in 
degree. His main responsibility is 
for the spiritual atmosphere of 
the campus. Through his com- 
mission he learns about special 
needs of the campus and tries to 
fulfill those needs. 

His commission talks to 
students to get new ideas and 
then tries to incorporate these 
ideas into activities. 

Another responsibility has been 
added to the RAC and this is 
student service commission. Any 
funds given to any service group 
on campus must come through 
the RAC commission and NOT 
the ASB committee.

Students Address CLC Convocators 

The following speeches have 
been excerpted by the authors 
from the speeches of the student 
members of the Convocation of 
the College delivered in the an- 
nual meeting of the Convocation 
held on October 26. 1973. 

The student convocators are 
Barry Ybarra, Larry Baca, and 
Terry Nipp. 


On the 26th of October a group 
of men and women called Con- 
vocators met on campus. 
"Wonderful", you might say, 
"but so what?" Unfortunately, 
some students are not aware as to 
just what Convocators do, or 
why. This ignorance would not 
seem to be any real tragedy with 
the exception of one detail. The 
Convocators sort of "own" your 
school. They are its stockholders 
so to speak. For this reason, it 
would seem a good idea for the 
students to know who Con- 
vocators are and why. It would 
seem equally important for the 
Convocators to have similar 
insights into students. As a 
student Convocator I was able to 
address our need for increased 

communication. To the best of 
my recollection the talk went 
somewhat as follows. 

A real concern which I've felt, 
and have heard from others as 
well, is the need for an increase in 
dialogue between the college and 
its convocators. As convocators, 
we meet only once a year. For the 
rest of the year there are no 
ready lines of communication. 
The convocators don't have the 
opportunity to follow closely the 
ideas and developments in the 
college community. In turn, the 
college is deprived of a valuable 
encounter with the perspectives 
and insights of their convocators. 
This breakdown in com- 
munication seems a sad loss to 
everyone concerned. 

For this reason then, I propose 
that programs be initiated to 
establish yearlong com- 
munication between the con- 
vocators and their constituency 
with the college. I have no ready 
made formula as to "how" this is 
to be done. I do, however, have a 
few suggestions. These 
suggestions are in no way ab- 
solute and they are easily 
adaptible, the need to do 
"something", however, remains. 

We could start by sending the 
convocators some of the college 
news. The ECHO might be a good

KINDEM. . .Cont . from pg . 1 

Mrs. Kindem has been active in 
music and art circles in the Mid- 
west. She played a leading role in 
My Fair Lady and The Music 
Man in the community theatre 
while living in the Mid-west. She 
is also a member of Phi Betta 

Kimdem gives great credit for 
the achievements of last year to 
Dr. Mathews and his own veteran 
development team, consisting of 
John Nordberg, John Olson, 

George Engdahl, and Al Kemp- 
fert, "and of course an out- 
standing bunch of secretaries." 
Kindem sees a tremendous 
future ahead for CLC. There are 
many encouraging signs that 
people are willing to give in- 
credible support to the college. 
He also feels that "CLC has 
turned the corner and will be 
strengthening its position among 
higher education institutions in 
the west."

aspects of life. They destroy their 

brains on drugs. Students are 

further exposed to man's 

animalistic ways, for example: 

the mass murders in Texas. 
There are too many things to 
distract the student in his studies, 
but he must persist until he has 
reached his goal. Then he should 
set higher goals for himself. 

Also, since man is so obsessed 
with material things and the 
relevance of everything, he often 
forgets the most relevant thing of 
all, which is God. He is the 
ultimate relevance. Instead of 
the person trying to figure out 
how God is relevant to him, he 
should figure out how he is 
relevant to God. 

"The art of teaching" 

Dr. Mortvedt specifically 
addressed the faculty when he 
questioned, "Why don't we do a 
better job?" Teaching is an art. A 
teacher is entrusted with one of 
the most important jobs ever, the 
job of developing the student's 
mind. He told the professors 
never to forget the possibility of 
greatness in students. 

om pg. 1 

"There is usually nothing in the 
world that cannot be improved." 
That includes teachers. Teachers 
should be continually learning 
new things, just like the student. 

"Wonders are many, but none 
are more wondrous than man". 
Man is in charge of his own 
destiny, he can either make 
himself good or bad. "What ever 
happens in his own mind is of 
supreme importance", concluded 
Dr. Mortvedt. 

The convocation was held as 
the opening event of the 
inauguration of the ad- 
ministrative team. 

medium for this. We could 
establish meetings of the "Home 
Convocators" to initiate new 
forms of communication. 

We could establish a 
framework wherein particular 
students and college personal 
would keep in touch with in- 
dividuals convocators throughout 
the year. 

Groups representing the 
college could speak to the con- 
vocators and their home chur- 
ches. This would give the college 
an opportunity to express its 
interests and objectives and in 
turn would give the convocators a 
chance to respond. 

However it is done, and in 
whatever form, I feel strongly the 
need for meaningful dialogue 
between the people involved in 
supporting the school and the 
people attending it. We are all a 
part of the community which 
makes up this school and we 
would be doing ourselves a great 
diservice not to utilize all of our 
resources and potential. We need 
to talk and to listen to each other 
carefully, and immediately. 


It is extremely important that 
we develop an academic attitude 
on campus. We have long suf- 
fered under the rule of the jock. 
Not attempting to stereotype any 
group, let's define a jock as the 
type of individual who will run 
into the television room on the 
day that Agnew has resigned and 
yell, "Did the Mets win?" This 
type of lethargic individual is 
becoming more and more visible 
on the CLC campus. Are we 
recruiting them? 

This attitude must change and 
the time is now. By building a 
Cultural and Performing Arts 
Center on campus we can make 
available to a great many more 
students, the type of educational 
and entertainment programs that 
are necessary for an enlightened 
student body. 

By building this type of facility, 
we will assure that every group 
will have somewhere to go when 
they have something to do. This 
will help cut down on the number 
of letters sent to the editor of the 
ECHO by irate female volleyball 

This year's schedule has been 
extremely crowded but this has 
been a blessing rather than a 
curse to the student body. Last 
year it was said that there was 
"nothing to do on campus." So 
far, we have made sure that this 
type of statement is difficult to 

Most of the programs have 
been successful. The films have 
large crowds and that is really an 
improvement over last year. The 
lectures have done well except 
for one which flopped badly. It 
was a real indication of the type 
of jockish attitude that exists on 
this campus. The attitude that 
says, "I won't go because I might

learn something." or "I don't 
believe in what they believe in, so 
I won't listen." or even more 
prevalent "I could care less", is 
the type that can be curbed and 
finally eradicated by the building 
of this center. 

The groundwork has already 
been done by the Conejo Future 
Foundation. They have worked 
out the logistics and Cal Lutheran 
has a chance to have it built on 
this campus. This center would 
provide not only for the campus 
but for the community too. We 
shouldn't let this opportunity slip 
by us as we have let the others. 

We have in the past been of- 
fered a stadium, student center 
and other types of facilities to be 
built free of charge. We refused 
them. The Cultural and Per- 
forming Arts Center will not be 
free but the work has been done. 
With the center on campus we 
could apply for a number of 
federal and private grants that 
could pay for the operation and 
maintenance of such a center. 

In the long run, it would be 
foolish of us to refuse this one. We 
should take the initiative at his 
time and if we do we can defeat 
those among us who cry, "Did the 
Mets win?" 


Usually in the Lutheran 
Church, the first fourteen years 
of one's life are dedicated to in- 
struction and learning, to 
discovery of God's laws, the his- 
tory of His people, and the reality 
of His Grace in our world today. 

Tomorrow we will inaugurate a 
new Administrative Team; 
tomorrow California Lutheran 
College will be confirmed. 

My pastor once said that 
Confirmation is a chance to "take 
your stand beside Christ." The 
confirmation of a college is no 
less significant. Have you ever 

given thought to the possibility of 
"California Lutheran Univer- 
sity"? It's not that far away — 
that is — if we believe that this is 

I'm here to tell you today that 
we have a goal, a dream if you 
will — that of seeing California 
Lutheran College become nothing 
less than the finest educational 
institution on the West Coast. 

California Lutheran Univer- 
sity. . .what does this mean in 
practical terms? It means the 
highest priority must be given to 
our Library, and with the 
priority — ACTION. Each of us 
must decide to let this meeting 
and tomorrow's inauguration be 
a beginning point for action, and 
not just the end point for words, 
the resources in this hall now 
must be tremendous. 

We can all help in some way — 
searching out donors for our 
Library, people who understand 
the importance of such a facility 
in our growth as whole in- 
dividuals. We can seek out those 
skilled in fund-raising, and 
dedicate a major program of 
funding efforts to the Library. 

Let us adopt a resolution today, 
that we as Convocators now take 
a personal stake in the academic 
future of California Lutheran 
College, urging the Regents.Ad- 
ministration, Faculty, and stu- 
dents to become one with us in 
this venture — building up our 
Library, the heart of any 
academic community. 

A lady by the name of Agnes 
Sanford once wrote, in regard to 
miracles, that "God does things 
through us, not for us," and as 
soon as we learn that, she says, 
"the matter becomes as simple 
as breathing, as inevitable as 
sunrise." It's time we let the 
miracle of limitless growth, 
which is our heritage as a Chris- 
tian college come of age, become 
"as simple as breathing, as 
inevitable as sunrise."

Are We Sound Judges of Policy? 

I want to introduce my concern 
by quoting from one of the great 
texts of historical literature, The 
History of the Peloponnesian War 
by Thucydides. 

In this work Thucydides 
presents a speech made by 
Pericles, the democratic leader 
and statesman of Athens, on the 
occasion of the funeral of the first 
Athenian soldiers killed in this 
disastrous war for Athens and 
Athenian democracy. 

In this speech Pericles proudly 
proclaimed the virtues of this 
democracy in which "ad- 
ministration was in the hands of 
the many and not of the few," 
where the state was not neglected 
because men were too busy 
taking care of their own 
household, and where even those 
who were engaged in business 
.had a very fair idea of politics. 

"We alone regard a man who 
takes no interest in public affairs, 
not as a harmless, but as a 
useless character; and if few of 
us are originators, we are all 
sound judges of policy. The great 
impediment to action is, in our 
opinion, not discussion, but the 
want of that knowledge which is 
gained by discussion preparatory 
to action." 

•Lack of interest" 

My concern is this. I don't find 
much interest in the discussion of 
public policy on this campus and 
I seriously doubt whether even 
most of the members of this 
campus community are sound 
judges of policy. Every four 
years I find that students do get 
stirred up over a presidential 
election, but that is often just a 
question of personality or 
inherited party loyalty. What I 
am interested in finding out is 
how interested students and 
faculty are on this campus in 
basic issues of public policy and 
whether we are sound judges of 

On November 6 the members of 
this community had the op- 
portunity of exercising their 
power and judgement by voting 
for or against an initiative con- 
stitutional amendment con- 
cerning tax and expenditure 
limitations. Here we have an 
important question of public 
policy to be decided upon by you, 
the citizens of this state. This is a 
constitutional amendment which 
could affect the policy and 
government of this state for 
many years, possibly for your 
children. By the time this con- 
cern is published, the results of 
the election will be known. I 
believe, however, that it would be 
helpful for the community to 
know how we voted on this 

"Recommending poll" 

Therefore I am recommending 
to our newspaper that they poll 
the students and faculty on the 
day following the election. This 
questionnaire should ascertain 
the following : ( 1 ) if the individual 
is a faculty member or student; 
(2) if a student, what year in 
school; (3) if the individual is or 
is not a resident of California and 
eighteen years or older; (4) if the 
individual is or is not a registered 
voter in the state of California; 
(5) if the individual voted yes or 
no on Proposition 1; (6) if the 
individual agrees or disagrees 
with the statement, "I believe 
that I am a sound judge of public 
policy;" (7) if the individual 
agrees or disagrees with 
statement. "I believe that most of 
the members of this community 

(CLC) are sound judges of public 
policy;" (8) if the individual 
would like to see more or less 
discussion of public policy and 
issues on this campus. The 
results of this poll could be 
presented in this campus 
newspaper for all to read and 
judge for themselves. 

Perhaps from this study and 
some discussion of this particular 
vote, we can find some way of 
overcoming that great im- 
pediment to action, the want of 

knowledge gained through 
discussion preparatory to action. 
I want the graduates of California 
Lutheran College to be well in- 
formed citizens who take the 
responsibility of citizenship 
seriously; I want to be a part of 
an intellectual community where 
the issues of the day are 
discussed and discussed in- 
telligently. That is my concern of 
the day. 



Dawn of a Decisive Decade II 

The language of the Sixties was 
vivid, laced with allusions to 
drugs, sex and peace: 
a "bad trip" referred to an LSD 

to "tell it like it is, man" was to 
level with, 

"credibility gap" should read 
incredibility gap, 
the "policy of containment" (can 
we overkill?), 

"you dig, baby?" meant do you 
get it? and "you turn me on" 
equaled I like you, 
"Hell, no. we won't go!" was a 
draftee chant, 

"Burn baby, burn" was the Black 

"bread" was needed to buy "pot, 
grass, or hash," and "stoned" 
was drunk on drugs or liquor, 
"busted" implied jailed, and 
"rapping" was yakking, 
"groupies" were boys-in-the- 
band followers, 

"up-tight" was to be tense, and to 
"cop out" was to give up, to quit. 

—adapted from Life magazine 

Well even with all of the mind- 
blowing realities and non- 
realities of the Sixties we have 
made it through to the Seventies. 
What, if anything, will the 
Seventies hold for mankind in 
general ? 

Not to be pessimistic, but if the 
beginning of the Seventies are 


any indication of the rest of this 
decade (i.e. Watergate, Agnew's 
indictment. Aenew's resignation. 
Ford's nomination, beef short- 
age, gas shortage, Watergate 
tapes, firing of Cox, resignations 
of Richardson and Ruckelshaus, 
two tapes missing, Mideast 
outbreak, domestic heartbreak) 
we all may as well live un- 
derground ! 

To escape this pollution: The 
waters are dirty and dark, the 
people are naked — stark. Will no 
one set that spark to let men free, 
so that they m?y see through the 
fog, soot, dirt and dust — see 
through to equality. Not only the 
air, but beneath their hair. . .this 
pollution creeps, this pollution 
seeps. It's not enough to make 
men weak, but rather to make 
men seek an answer to this 
paradox before they find just 
rusty locks. 


With Homecoming just around 
the corner we here at CLC should 
remember where we came from, 
remember our roots so to speak 
and decide for ourselves what 
type of decade we want the 
Seventies to be and then take a 
step in that direction. Let this be 
the dawn of a decisive decade for 
you, for me,. . .for we. 

World Community Day 


His image is in us all and we 
discover him by discovering his 
likeness in one another. T. 

I write of Pablo Casals and 
Pablo Neruda. I write of them 
because it is World Community 
Day. They are before me and 
moving through my pen because 
their lives have message and 
nerve for such a day. 

They are lights bright enough 
to illuminate such a darkening 
theme as World Community. 
Here are spirits bright enough to 
transform the yawn and sardonic 
laughter. I recollect them and I 
turn afresh to World Community. 

They are men of art. They gave 
themselves to the discipline and 
form, with spirit. 

There is Casals in his 90's, 
each morning, turning to the 
scales on piano and cello. Each 
day submitting himself to the 
basic works of Bach. Openly 
confessing that one never 

exhausts basic works. Moving 
from discipline to brilliance of 
artistry in performance and 
composition. A discipline fit for 

And Neruda, Poet, Nobel. With 
words, most basic bolts for 
thrusts of spirit and sight, his 
charge. Also basic and humble in 
the presence of the form, which 
shaped his life, making him free. 

Can we see, hear? 

Both from Spain sent in exile by 
the sheer intolerance of tyranny. 
Both sensible to the awful threat 
of national pride to forms and 
spirit. Both experienced in the 
heavy hand of artless National 

Both in art rising from and 
through the dull forces that lay 
clumsy hands on world com- 
munity. Soaring free of the 
moralistic smogs. Not beyond! 
They will not let us forget Chile, 
oppression, arrogance, and the 
United Fruit Company. This is all 
within where the image is. Note 
and word give form to spirit for a 
world community of free persons.

Dorm Hours Need 
to be Re-evaluated 


The last major change in dormitory living policy came in the 
spring semester of 1972 when Open House hours were expanded 
from approximately twelve hours per week to the present limit of 
seventy-four hours per week. 

That was a big jump, and at the time there was a great deal of 
discussion about how to deal with problems that resulted from the 
expanded hours. 

Fortunately, most of our concern was in vain. At the time, I was a 
member of a McAfee judiciary set up specifically for the purpose of . 
helping McAfee residents deal with interpersonal problems 
resulting from the new hours, and I am pleased to say that we never 
heard a single case involving roommates, and only two cases of 
violation of hours. 

The CLC student body as a whole has responded with a great deal 
of maturity in the past year and a half, and now some members of 
the student body have again raised the issue of increasing the 
number of Open House hours per week. 

These students, who have, I believe, the support of the student 
body, are not asking for twenty-four hour open dorms since they 
realize that that would be unrealistic. 

Instead they are asking for an increase of two to three hours per 
day, which is not unreasonable, based on the supposition that we, as 
CLC students, have proved that we can be trusted with the 
responsibility that we now have, and therefore the administration 
should give us an opportunity to prove that we can be trusted with 

Certainly, a large part of a college education consists of learning 
to accept responsibility and the only way to learn this is by doing it. 
When I graduate from this institution, I will go into a world where 
Open House hours do not exist. The way in which I will cope with 
this different world will largely depend on how well my social 
education at CLC has prepared me for it. 

It is with this in mind, then, that I recommend that the ad- 
ministration at least seriously consider, if not institute, increased 
Open House hours. 

Side Attraction at 
Pop's Concert 


All of those who were at the 
Pop's Concert Sunday, October 
28, were entertained by the Music 
Department but might have 
noticed a side attraction that was 
being performed in the gym 

One could not help but hear the 
shouts and dribbles of the ball on 
the court adjacent to the im- 
mediate wall. 

Of course it is expected of the 
"jocks" to be inconsiderate and 
thoughtless, but when one of 
those "jocks" happens to be 
employed by the college, more 
specifically the job of "Director 
of Activities," I feel it is my duty 
to say something. 

Now to the point. Don Hossler, 
Director of Activities, and 
graduate of CLC is a great person 
and on my personal experience, 
having him as my Head Resident 

for the now second year in a row, 
I can truthfully say that he is a 
very fair person and works very 
hard at his job. He has a lovely 
wife and a great personality. 

I realize that with a busy 
weekend and the gym being used 
most of the time, that when 
Sunday afternoon finally came 
the guys were all anxious to get 
some ball playing in, but during a 
concert doesn't strike me as 
being quite apropos and being 
director of activities, he was fully 
aware of the concert. Mr. 
Ramsey and Mr. Haskell were 
both appalled at this obvious lack 
of good judgment. 

I regret reporting this and I 
sincerely don't want to lose the 
friendship of a good person and I 
hope that I don't. I just feel that it 
is my duty as a concerned student 
of CLC that other people should 
also be concerned and con-

Quick Thanks 

At this time I'd like to take the 
time to say thank you to all those 
who made the inauguration a 
success for me. As student 
chairman, I wondered if one 
person could coordinate even this 
small portion of it. Thanks to 
three people, this was made a 
possibility. Lori McMillin made 
the banner procession the suc- 
cess that it was. Taffy Walker 
made the ball one of the most 
successful dances I've ever seen 
at CLC. Walt Miller and the crew, 
(Clancy, Mr. Pantaz, etc.) really 
put in an excellent job. Thanks to 


Student Attacks 
Data Center 


This letter is not so much to 
argue with Mr. Cohen, but to 
present an opposing viewpoint to 
that of the National Legal Data 
Center. It seems to me that the 
judgement of obscenity should be 
left up to the individual and not to 
people who insist they know 
what's best for society. Hitler 
claimed the same kind of 

The emminent philosopher 
Bertrand Russell probably stated 
the case best when he wrote: 

"I do not myself believe that it 
is possible to frame a law against 
obscenity which will not have . . . 
undesireable consequences, and 
in view of this fact, I should 
myself be in favour of having no 
law whatever upon the subject. 
The arguement in favour of this 
thesis is twofold : on the one hand , 
that no law can forbid the bad 
without forbidding the good also, 
and on the other hand, that 
publications which are un- 
doubtedly and frankly por- 
nographic would do very little 
harm if sex education were 
rational .... 

"There is, however, a further 
ground for objecting to cen- 
sorship, and that is that even 
frank pornography would do less 
harm if it were open and 
unashamed than it does when it is 
rendered interesting by secrecy 
and stealth. In spite of the law, 
nearly every fairly well-to-do 
man has in adolescence seen 
indecent photographs, and has 
been proud of obtaining 
possession of them because they 
were difficult to procure. Con- 
ventional men are of opinion that 
such things are extraordinarily 
injurious to others, although 
hardly one of them will admit 
that they have been injurious to 
himself. Undoubtedly they stir a 
transient feeling of lust, but in 
any sexually vigorous male such 
feelings will be stirred in one way 
if not in another. The frequency 
with which a man experiences 
lust depends upon his own 
physical condition, whereas the 
occasions which rouse such 
feelings in him depend upon the 
social conventions to which he is 
accustomed. To an early Vic- 
torian man a womans ankles 
were sufficient stimulus, 
whereas a modern man remains 
unmoved by anything up to the 
thigh. This is merely a question of 
fashion in clothing. If nakedness 
were the fashion, it would cease 
to excite us, and women would be 
forced, as they are in certain 
savage tribes, to adopt clothing 
as a means of making themselves 
sexually attractive. Exactly 

Letters to the Editor

similar considerations apply to" 
literature and pictures: what was 
exciting in the Victorian age 
would leave the men of a franker 
epoch quite unmoved. The more 
prudes restrict the permissable 
degree of sexual appeal, the less 
is required to make such an 
appeal effective. Nine-tenths of 
the appeal of pornography is due 
to the indecent feelings con- 
cerning sex which moralists 
inculcate in the young; the other 
tenth is physiological, and will 
occur in one way or another 
whatever the state of the law may 
be. On these grounds, although I 
fear that few will agree with me, 
I am firmly persuaded that there 
ought to be no law whatsoever on 
the subject of obscene

I have faith in mankind. With a 
good education they can tell the 
difference between art and ob-

good taste and bad taste. Let the

threatening the beloved floor of 
the gym. 

I personally am not trying to 
create friction between anyone, 
or any group, or any committee. 
All I'm trying to do is to get our 
fair share of time and equipment. 
The concerts and lectures can be 
scheduled for after our practices 
or for Friday nights or during our 
away games. Our schedule is 
made up during the spring so 
there's plenty of time to check 
our schedules against the Con- 
cert/Lecture dates. Doing this 
will keep everybody happy and 
provide a better relationship 
between all those concerned. 

Reply to "Steak" 

I wish to reply to the editorial 
printed in the October 25 issue of 
the KINGSMEN ECHO entitled 
"Steak for Water Boys?" to 
straighten out some of the 
misconceptions held by the 
author of that article. 

Did the reviewer sleep through 
the performance? Was she at all 
moved by Ms. Dreuding's "fire" 
scene with Mr. Conners? 

Stella's role was adequately 
filled by Joyce McGreevy, but the 
reviewer's emphasis on her part 
makes one wonder if she let 
personal emotions influence her 
too much. 

To mix struggles and emotions 
with confusion, eloquence with 
simplicity, and vacuity with 
courage is not the mark of a good 
critic. To say that Streetcar was 
Stella's tragedy is to completely 
miss the play's major emphasis. 

In the future may I suggest the 
ECHO call on the Drama or 
English Departments for a critic 
who will be a little less partial 
and a little more understanding 
of the material.

Got the Gym... 

Recently there has been a 
misunderstanding between the 
Concert /Lecture Commission 
and the Women's Volleyball 
Team. For the last two evenings, 
even though we were told to 
practice early, we were pushed 
out of the gym during our alloted 
time period. On Monday, October 
15, we were abruptly moved out 
of the gym because of the Young 
People's Concert and Tuesday, 

Also, the team only receives 
two meals on game day, break- 
fast and dinner, so the Athletic 
Department pays the extra cost 
for an upgraded meal. 

In this way the team receives 
the bulk and energy of two meals, 
breakfast and lunch, in one that is 
served early in the morning and 
is supposed to suffice until din- 

Second, the "water boy" was 
one of the coach's sons, a young 
man who is involved with the

say, it was rather difficult to hear 
the coach's instructions above an 
electric saxophone and gym- 
shaking drums. 

I'm not saying that these 
diverse types of concerts are not 
welcomed or appreciated, for 
they are, however, the volleyball 
team has the gym reserved 
Monday through Thursday from 
6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This is the 
only time in which we can 
practice, due to Men's Athletics 
and daily classes. 

To me it would be interesting to 
contemplate the repercussions 
that would occur if the football 
team couldn't use the field or the 
basketball team couldn't use (lie 
gym because of "all college" 
activities. Granted the volleyball 
team doesn't have a very im- 
pressive win -loss record, but then 
for the past two years over 50 per 
cent of the team have been fresh- 
men with no competitive ex- 
perience. As it stands now there 
is one player with three years of 
intercollegiate experience, three 
with one year and ten with no 
experience at all. Certainly one 
knows how desperately ex- 
perience is needed to form a well 
balanced and thinking team. 

The Men's Basketball Team 
doesn't have a very impressive 
record either, yet they receive 
new uniforms and proper 
equipment to continue their 
sport. The women, on the other 
hand, don't have enough 
uniforms in the first place and 
because of improper equipment, 
are threatened with pulling up 

is not, at least, apathetic to 
campus activities as are SOME 
people on campus. 

If you would get off your rear 
end and do something for the 
betterment of one of the athletic 
teams here on campus, maybe 
you would rate a steak meal also. 
If you really wanted to knock 
the "theoretically" fried eggs of 
the cafeteria, or any of the other 
food prepared there, why not just 
come right out and complain, 
instead of dragging in the athletic 

Better yet, if your mouth really 
waters for our "theoretically" 
fried steak, get involved. Don't 
just sit back and "question 
priorities". If you want to sit 
back, maybe YOUR priorities 
should be questioned. 

As for the bare feet in the 
cafeteria, there is no real excuse 
for that. However, that is the 
cafeteria staffs job, not the 
Athletic Department's. 

Drama Critic 

Dear Editor, 

I wish to discuss drama 
criticism, and specifically the 
review in your last issue. 

Ms. Walker's article on the 
production of A Streetcar Named 
Desire served only to fill the 
space where a review should 
have been. 

She did have some good points 

the floor boards of the gym °each about £e la* of dr.nS.7£u™ 

time we practice. The net is and Mr. Ybarra's controversial 

required to be at an even height interpretation of Stanley But ^

comparable to the NAIA,. Due unimpassioned and Ms 

to improper equipment, we Dreuding's overshadowed is 

cannot attain this height without going beyond good judgement 

Dear Editor, 

In the last issue of The 
KINGSMEN ECHO October 26, 
1973, there was a so-called review 
of Cal Lutheran's production of A 
Streetcar Named Desire by Taffy 
Walker. I will not mention Miss 
Walker's lack of qualifications as 
a critic for dramatic productions. 
However, I will give credit to 
Miss Walker for her nerve. But 
my intention is not to slander 
Miss Walker; it is to give credit 
where credit is due, to the finei 
performance of not only June 
Drueding, but the whole cast of 

June Drueding did an out- 
standing job as Blanch Du Bois. 
Her acting ability has already 
been qualified by her award as 
best actress last year for her 
performance in Amorous Flea, 
but as Blanch, Miss Drueding 
achieved a study of that 
character that equaled any in- 
terpretation of Blanch done in the 
past. Blanch is a complex 
character. She is flighty, bird- 
like, she wants magic instead of 
reality and when she is forced to 
make that discovery of reality, 
she breaks down. She says that 
her soul is clean and in a sense it 
is. She has kept her integrity 
intact. For Miss Drueding to 
achieve the duplicity of this 
character took hours of work. I 
say hours because unlike most of 
the women who have undertaken 
this part and have had months to 
prepare, Miss Drueding had only 
three weeks. 

Barry Ybarra perhaps was not 
as animalistic as Marlon Brando 
or as sloppy and funny as Jon 
Voit but I must respect him for 
his own representation of 
Stanley. The intensity of his 
character came through in the 
consistency of his interpretation. 
When Ybarra bellowed STELLA, 
I knew he wanted Stella. There 
wasn't any compromise in this 

Joyce McGreevy did an 
adequate job as Stella. Her baby 
face pout suited the character 
perfectly, however if you are to 
meet Miss McGreevy on the 
street she would still have that 
same pout on her face. She 
carried her part well and kept up 
the momentum of the play but to 
say that she carried the show is 
an error. 

Perhaps the most surprising 
and refreshing performance 
came from freshman Chuck 
Connor. As Mitch his awk- 
wardness and sincerity were 
very authentic. I believe Connor 
displayed an excellent un- 
derstanding of a very difficult 
supporting role. Connor's 
mannerism's appeared con- 

trolled and studied rather than 
impromtu. I think in the future 
roles Connor's full potential will 
be realized. 

The rest of the supporting cast 
were selected with care in order 
to carry off the authenticity of the 
French Quarter. Barry 
Disseldorf as the young collector 
indeed had an air of innocence so 
that the scene did not become 
ludicrous. Dave Streetz and 
Charlotte Rumph as the Hubbies 
provided the comic relief without 
becoming slapstick as so often 
happens when an actors try to 
over do a small role. Manny 
Sanchez did as much as was 
possible with a typecast role as 
Pablo Gonzales. Sanchez was 
allowed a little versatility when 
he became the mugger to set the 
mood for the rape scene. I'm sure 
the play would not have had the 
continuity that if had without 
Greg Zimmerman as the doctor, 
Sue Broas as the nurse and Ivy 
Dobrinky as the flower vender. 
The whole cast responded as a 
unit to bring about perhaps one of 
CLC's finest achievements in 

I have not mentioned the work 
involved in the set design and 
construction nor the stage crew 
that contributed to the fluid 
continuance of Streetcar, but 
without them the show would not 
have been what it was. 

Unfortunately, the scores have 
not been returned as yet on 
Streetcar for the American 
Collegiate Theatre Guild, but I'm 
sure Cal Lutheran's presentation 
of A Streetcar Named Desire will 
rank highly in the competition. 

ECHO Editor 

Dear Editor, 

If you are trying to discourage 
students from writing letters to 
the paper I suggest you continue 
your policy on "Editor's Notes". 
If you are afraid that opposing 
viewpoints might corrupt your 
printed biases then perhaps you 
should refrain from even 
publicating (sic) them. If this is 
not your goal then I have a few 
things I would like to state. 

No other paper in this country, 
large or small, takes advantage 
of a letter to the editor for writing 
an editorial. Most editors feel 
that thev have had their say and 
respect an opposing view. The 
government of our country 
established a law that granted 
"equal time** in the media, thus 
creating balanced understanding 
Ol an issue. 

I take great offense when you 
then attack a letter, and even 
more so when you use half-truths, 
straight out lies, and your own 
bias to do it. I suggest you climb 
off your pinnacle of pride and 
allow students a free voice with 
their position, or jepordize any 
chance of establishing a paper 
with all views offered. 


Editor's Note: 

My reply to Mr. McGee's letter 
took the same form as any other 
student's reply to any letter 
might have taken. 

The sole difference is that, 
because of my position as the 
edi tor of the newspaper, my reply 
takes the form of an "Editor's 
Note" rather than that of a letter. 

It would look rather silly for the 
editor to be writing letters to the

Basketball Season 
Opens November 26 

Every afternoon, twenty-two 
students meet in the gym and 
start practice for the basketball 
season, with the fourteen Varsity 
players getting primary at- 
tention. The team started pre- 
training in September by going to 
the beach every Tuesday and 
Thursday and having dinner 

"The main goal was just to get 
acquainted," Coach Bill Keene 
said. "We spent an hour and a 
half or so at the beach and ran a 
mile to a mile and a half. The 
amount of individuals kept in- 
creasing. We started off with, I 
think, about nine guys then in- 
creased to twelve. After the 
second time we got up to twenty 
guys that were going to the 
beach. The word got out, they 
were enjoying it so those others 
who were thinking about going 
out for the team joined up." 

"Good pre-season condition" 

We took part in running the 
cross-country, running the five 
mile run as far as a pre-season 
conditioner goes. By the time the 
season opened on the fifteenth 
most of the fellas were in pretty 
good shape and it's easier for 
them to go through the training 
we have set up." 

Because of the team's size, 
Coach Keene hopes to set up a 
fast break game. "I hope to be 
moving up Greg Deneene — he's 
our 6'9" freshman. He'll be 
starting off on our Junior Varsity 
team and possibly playing or at 
least dressing for some of the 
Varsity games." 

"Positions still open" 

When asked if he had the 
positions set yet, Keene 
responded, "I think that all the 
players that we have on the team 
pretty well realize that they're in 
a competitive-type position in 
that any one could jockey the 
other out of their position, so I 
think this is one of the strong 
points as far as the desire and 
attitude of the players is con- 
cerned. All the positions are 
pretty loose at this point yet." 

"I have a couple of ideas where 
I'd like to play individuals but at 
this stage of the game we're still 
trying to see who can work with 

each other the best and get the 
best results. The team is in better 
shape at this point than last 

"Long season ahead" 

Keene is worried about the 
length of the season. "From 
November 9 to the playoffs in 
March it's a long season as far as 
holding the guys together for five 
months. To have a team thinking 
positive for five months is not an 
easy thing to do." 

There are five returning let- 
termen this year and the rest of 
the team are veteran J.V. players 
who have moved up to the var- 
sity. With just two seniors on the 
team, Keene expects this year to 
be a building year and next year 
to be even better. 

"Need student support" 

Keene is worried about student 
support for the team. "We look 
forward to a noisy crowd. A 
crowd that takes part is very 
exciting to be a part of. The 
players appreciate it, the coach 
appreciates it, the visiting team 
doesn't. This is why we want to 
get as many out as we can." 

The team is planning on raising 
community support by spon- 
soring basketball clinics at some 
of the local schools. "I'll be with 
the Recreation Department on 
November 17 giving a clinic for 
the Conejo Valley people at 
Thousand Oaks High School," 
Keene concluded. "I'll be taking 
three or four of the ballplayers to 
some of the elementary schools 
and putting on short little clinics. 
"Long range benefits" 

"We won't reap any benefits 
this year, and maybe not next 
year, but over the long range I 
think that Ventura County is a 
high drawing factor, not only in 
athletics but also for the school. I 
think that the more the basket- 
ball team and all the teams can 
do as far as creating a lot of 
goodwill in the community, will 
increase our enrollment and 
make CLC a better school." 

The team is looking to win the 
Alumni game on November 9 to 
give them a good start on the 
regular season which opens 
November 26 with a home game 
against Cal Baptist.

Varsity Defeats LaVerne 

Playing under a hot LaVerne 
sun, the inconsistent Kingsmen 
won their fourth game of the 
season against an equally 
troubled LaVerne College team. 

The Kingsmen gained 
momentum early following a 
fumble recovery on the first play 
of the game and scored two 
touchdowns in the first period of 

Both teams were scoreless in 
the second quarter and at half 1 
time CLC led 14 to 6. 

The offense got it together in 
the third quarter and widened the 
margin to 28 to 6. 

The first score of the second 
half was set up by a 40 yard 
kickoff return by Lester Haynes. 
Six plays later Wilson hit Eskrige 
on a 40 yard pass in the endzone. 

Defense set up the next score 

when Keith Richards recovered a 
fumble on the LaVerne 13 yard 
line. Bauer punched it over from 
the one six plays later. 

Cal Lutheran slowed down in 
the fourth quarter and allowed 
LaVerne to come within 4 points 
in the final minutes of play, but 
held on to win 28 to 24. 

How they scored: 

CLC — Eskrige 4 pass from 
Wilson (PAT. McAllister) 

LaVerne — McFarland 9 pass 
from Mercurio (PAT. failed) 

CLC — Hamm 57 pass from 
Wilson (PAT. McAllister) 

CLC — Eskrige 40 pass from 
Wilson (PAT. McAllister) 

LaVerne — Welch 3 run (PAT. 


LaVerne — Mercurio 1 run (PAT.

Barker Named Head CLC Wrestling Coach 

"I hate to make any pre-seaso/i 
predictions simply because it is 
so early in the season and it takes 
awhile to know where we need to 
strengthen our squad," 
remarked Coach Greg Barker, 
the new head coach for CLC. 
Coach Barker went on to com- 
ment, "I do feel that we will be 
very competitive. We have some 
good talent on the team and 
because the team is with only one 
senior, we should be interesting 
to watch." 

Barker has been associated 
with CLC in the past as a trainer 
for the football team. Due to Dr. 
Ted Eckman's unavailability to 
coach the team this year, he was 
named the new head wrestling 
coach late in October. "Eckman 
received a research grant and 
could not devote enough time to 
coaching. He is however, acting 
as assistant coach along with Jim 
Day. They will be working a few 
days a week, mainly on skills, 
with the wrestlers. My job as 
head coach will mainly be to 
condition the wrestlers and take 

on the headaches of the budget, 
scheduling, etc. Between the 
three of us though, we should 
have a good, strong team." 

The wrestling team opens the 
1973-74 season on Saturday 
December 8 against UC Santa 
Barbara at Santa Barbara. 

Diablos Deal Kingsmen 
Third Seasonal Loss 

In the Kingsmen loss to CSULA 
on Saturday night, October 20, 
the 32-27 score wasn't 
representative of the game 
played by Cal Lu, if one considers 
the fourth quarter comeback 
touch down, that would have won 
the game, had the official seen it 
that way. The refree ruled that 
when the ball was caught the 
receiver did not land inside the 
end zone, so the Purple and Gold 
were denied the go-ahead points. 

It appeared that the Kingsmen 
might finally break one open 
Saturday night, by scoring 14 
points in the first quarter 

followed by another TD in the 
second period. Cal State LA 
showed a lot of courage though, 
and came back to score twice 
before the half. 

In the third quarter CLC was 
unable to score, but it wasn't so 
for the Diablos, as they narrowed 
the lead to 21-20. 

Late in the final period of play 
the Purple tide regained some of 
its first half momentum by 
scoring another touchdown, but it 
wasn't enough to catch Cal State 
who racked up two more TD's in 
fourth quarter action to win the

Mr. Guy Broc speaks at the French 
House. (Photo by Hall.) 



Broc Sp 
French Politics 


Through the joint efforts ol the 
CLC French and Political Science 
Departments, Mr. Guy S. Broc 
spoke to an audience of about 
fifty people on November 15 at 
the French House. He is the 
Deputy Cultural Attache at the 
Consulate General of France in 
Los Angeles. 

Broc is well qualified in the 
areas of French domestic and 
foreign ailairs, as illustrated by 
Ins "License des lettres" from 
the University ol Aix nrFrance. a 
California Teaching Credential, 
and graduate work in In- 
ternational Relations at 
u emonl Graduate School. 

Phe tirst point handled con- 
cerned France's political system. 
This question was broken into two 
mam sub-points, the first being 
(he government structure ol 

Starling with the President of 
France, Broc drew a correlation 
with our President, but only to a 

"Duties of Prime Minister" 

Whereas our President handles 
daily routine such as co- 
ordination of national depart- 
ments and day to day executive 
activities, these responsibilities 
in France are handled by a Prime 
Minister, similar to England's 
Prime Minister. 

Legislative duties in France 
are handled by a Parliament, 
whose representatives are 
elected from districts within 
France. Two interesting points 
regarding the election of these 
representatives were noted. 

First, a candidate need not 
reside in the district in which he 
desires election. Second, there is 
no "equal representation" rule in 

The French court system is not 
really comparable with the U.S. 
Supreme Court, because the 

French court does not get in- 
volved in politics. Whereas our 
Supreme Court decides matters 
of constitutionality, etc., the 
French court does not. 

A question of checks and 
balances was raised and Broc 
responded by saying thai with 
the French court not politically 
powerful and that the govern- 
mental power is located in the 
Legislative and Executive 
branches, with the President 
having an edge in power as he is 
elected to a seven year term. 

There was a recent move to 
change the President's term 
from seven years to live years, 
but il failed However, I his ii 

is expected lo figure pr tently 

in the next election 

•.Multi-part\ system" 

The second mam point con- 
concerning France's politics 
that ol political parties. It is this 

point that really differentia 
the U.S. and France politically. 

In France there is a multi- 
party system. The basis of the 
multi-party system in France is 
that whatever a party receives in 
percentage of total vote, they get 
that many seals for their parts 

For example, if party 'X' were 
to get 6 per cent ol the total vote, 
they receive 6 per cent of 
representative seats. This is 
contrasted with the winner-take- 
all" system in the U.S. 

The French view of the 
Watergate scandal is one mainly 
of curiosity and disbelief The 
reason for disbelief is that the 
French people see politics as a 
kind of "no holds barred' power 
struggle. They consider political

CLC Celebrates Christmas 

Season with Lucia Bride 
Ceremony Set for Tonight 

A legend is told in Sweden 
about Lucia, a young girl who 
lived during the Middle Ages. 
Today we speak of her as Saint 
Lucia and celebrate her story 
with a joyous festival at 

She was betrothed, the legend 
says, to a handsome young man 
and was journeying to her 
wedding with a happy heart when 
she came upon a group of 
destitute beggars who were 
unable to celebrate Christmas. 

So kind was she that she 
stopped to share with them all 
that she had — her bridal dowry. 
When she had spent it to ease 
their poverty she hastened on to 
the church. 

The custom of the times, 
however, forbade the marriage of 
a dowerless girl and Lucia's 
husband-to-be was forced to 
reject her. 

Denied this happiness, she 
determined to make her life one 
of service to the poor. Generously 
and willingly she spent her days 
in easing pain, feeding the 
hungry and comforting the 

Her selflessness was cruelly 
misinterpreted by many and 
brave Lucia was convicted of 
witchcraft. She died a martyr at 
the stake. 

Il is believed that Saint Lucia's 
spirit is still alive, however, and 
that it yet goes about doing good. 

It is this spirit of kindness and 
service that CLC celebrates each 
year with its festival of Lucia 

In Swedish families, on Saint 
Lucia's Day, the eldest daughter 
awakes early and dressed in 
white with a wreath ol candles on 
her head, serves a breakfast of 
special rolls to her family. At 
CLC, an election is held to choose 
the girl from each class who is 

most outSl hug for her 

Christian service Lucia Bride 
herself is chosen lrom the senior 
class. Elections will be 
December 3. 

This year, AWS is planning a 
celebration that will last the 
entire weekend, beginning 
Friday, December 7. At 7:30 on 
Friday, the traditional All Dorm 
Caroling Contest will be held. 
Competition will be stiff this year 
as the language houses, the 
dorms, the commuters, and 
several of the departments lift 
their voices in Christmas carols. 

A brass band on top of the gym 
will herald the beginning of the 
exciting evening. When all are 
assembled in the gym, Peggy 
Schultz will present the welcome, 
Pastor Swanson will offer the 
invocation and Dr. Bowman will 
act as Master of Ceremonies. 

After the caroling, Jean 
Blomquist, last year's Lucia 
Bride, will recount the legend and 
Dr. Mathews will make the long 
awaited announcement of the 
new Lucia Bride and her court of 

The girls will begin their reign 
by leading an all college torch- 
light procession up Mt. Clef to 
the cross At the summit, Dr. 
Curt Nelson of the Biology 
Department, will offer a brief 
devotional message. Before 
returning to the gym a stop will 
be made at the life-size nativity 
scene on the lawn opposite 
Mountclef Dorm. There carols 

will be sung and Bible verses 
read by different students. 

Back at the gym, the eager 
group will hear the judges' 
decision as to the caroling contest 
winners. The selection will be 
made by a qualified panel of two 
faculty members, two alumni, 
and two local businessmen. Dr. 
Mathews will then take the 
podium to make the presentation 
of a small gift to Lucia Bride and 
her court. 

The ideal of Saint Lucia is 
visibly expressed as she and the 
princess dressed in white serve 
home-made Swedish rolls around 
the large Christmas tree in the 

The festivities will continue 
Saturday and Sunday with the 
dorm open house. Each dorm will 
try to outdo itself in presenting a 
Merry Christmas theme with 
decorations and holiday refresh- 
ments for visitors. At the 
Christmas Concert to be 
presented Saturday afternoon by 
the Music Department, Lucia 
Bride will be the guest of honor. 
She will continue to preside over 
the entire weekend, embodying 
that true Christmas spirit which 
flamed in Saint Lucia's life so 
long ago and burns in hearts 
today where unselfishness and 
Christian kindness live. 

Dean's Office Announces 
Possible Board Increase 

"Anybody who eats out or even 
at home is aware of the fact that 
food prices have risen 
dramatically." remarked Dean 
Ron Kragthorpe after disclosing 
the facl that CLC students may 
have lo pay $25 more for their 
food in the spring semester. 

For three years the price of 
food has been steadily rising, and 
the room and board costs at CLC 
have not. Up until now, we got

been one thousand dollars per

good results. In the past only 
forth-lhree per cent of the forty

recently has moved the milk 
containers to the front and 
limited the consumption to two 
glasses per person. 

Mr. Bucanan was at PLU two 
or three years ago and was faced 
with a similar problem. He found 
that the students preferred to 
have the price raised rather than 
not have as much as they wanted.

I Bach Exhibit on Display in Library I 

An exhibition depicting I he important events in the life of the $ 
famed composer and musician Johann Sebastian Bach (1685- 1750) K 
opened on Monday, December 3, at the CLC library. 2 

The exhibit is sponsored by the German Department and has « 
been arranged by the German Institute for Foreign Cultural R 
Relations. 5 

Although not appreciated in his life lime, Bach's music was w 
largely resurrected in the nineteenth century beginning with the 2 
revival of the St. Matthew Passion by Mendelssohn at the Berlin K 
voice i raining school. Since I hen his devotees have grown with each Jj[ 
succeeding generation. » 

The renewed interest in such old instruments as the clavichord, 2 
the baroque organ, the harpsichord, and the high-pitched trumpet « 
are in part due to Bach. g 

Enthusiasts will be able to view portraits, manuscripts, and S 
pictures of the various phases and development of his life and w

Marigolds Gains Momentum 
After Slow Start 


The effect of the opening mood 
music and the sound of a soft 
voice contemplating the miracle 
of the universe was as fresh, 
stimulating, and hopeful as the 
theme of The Effects of Gamma 
Rays on Man-in-the-Moon 

This pleasant effect was 
somewhat reduced as the first 
two scenes of CLC's production of 
this play, directed by Donald H. 
Simmons, proceeded at a slow 
pace. However, from scene to 
scene the production gained 
momentum as the characters 
developed on stage. 

A snowball effect was typical of 
the production with the actresses 
seemingly discovering the 
characters as the play continued. 
From a slow start, the play 
finally wound up, as a firmly 
packed snowball, with the ac- 
tresses and the audience involved 
in the emotions and struggles of 
the characters. 

Charlotte Rumph's charac- 
terization of Beatrice held some 
of this ambivalence which was 
typical of the production. At 
times her characterization 
showed hesitation. However, by 
the end of the play, Ms. Rumph 
rallied and, not withstanding 
slightly distracting make-up was 

able to grasp this character 
trapped in hopelessness. By the 
last scenes, she seemed to finally 
know the character and was 
fairly successful in com- 
municating the essence of 
Beatrice to the audience. 

Joyce McGreevy's per- 
formance as Tillie was marked 
by inconsistency at times, too. 
Her face, usually so ap- 
propriately expressive, 
registered a frown throughout 
several scenes which looked 
more worried and angry than the 
hopeful Tillie should have. By the 
end of the play, this frown was 
erased and replaced with ex- 
pressions reflecting the varying 
degrees of emotions — won- 
derment and hopefulness and the 
briefly lived moments of 
disappointment — which were so 
necessary to a successful 
presentation of Tillie and 

Two performances were 

remarkably consistent and 

seemed to vary little from 

beginning to end. And 

remarkably, both roles were 

One of these portrayals was 
given by Vicki Blume. She was 
successful in presenting a role, 
which being complete with 
screaming and epileptic con- 

vulsions, could easily have been 
destroyed by over-acting. Her 
performance made good use of 
all that the characterization held, 
getting as much worth out of the 
role as seemed possible. 

The other performance which 
played for all it was worth was 
given by Joyce Howard as 
Nanny. Her body trembled just 
enough; her walk assisted by a 
metal walker was convincing; 
and her eyes gazed vacantly and 
solemly out, over and beyond the 
audience. A truly outstanding 
performance which moved the 
audience without benefit of 

Finally Judy Standerfer's 
portrayal of Janice Vickery, 
Tillie's rival science student, was 
played, or rather over-played, in 
such a way that the character's 
egolisticalness seemed over- 
shadowed by her stupidity. 
Although somewhat over-stated, 
the portrayal adequately 
displayed the conceit and 
shallowness of the character. 

The production was sustained 
by excellent sound effects which 
were always on cue and quite 
often sent chills up one's spine. 
The lighting, costuming, and set 
were done well and created an 
appropriate mood for the 

Thorne Calls for Impeachment off Nixon 


"Richard Nixon, President of 
the United States . . . has 
presided over the most corrupt 
administration in the history of 
this nation." 

This is the conviction of Worley 
Thorne, who was a guest speaker 
at CLC on November 28. 

Thorne, a member of the 
American Civil Liberties Union 
and Citizens to Impeach Richard 
Nixon, expounded on the reasons 
he feels Nixon should be im- 

While setting up his tape 
recorder, Thorne quipped, "This 
is a machine I picked up in 
Washington. It loses eighteen 
minutes out of every tape." 
"Reasons for 

Thorne detailed his reasons for 
calling for Nixon's impeachment 
with the aid of a full page ad- 
vertisement that appeared in the 
Los Angeles Times on November 
7. The ad was sponsored by the 
Citizens to Impeach Richard 

Thorne maintains that the 
charges facing Nixon should be 
as follows. 

Nixon has obstructed justice in 
abusing Presidential power, pay- 
offs, and offers of executive 
clemency in exchange for 

He ordered a secret war in 
Cambodia and ordered the VS. 
Air Force to falsify bombing 
reports of that war. 

Nixon induced former Cabinet 
members and White House aides 
to perjure themselves to grand 
juries and to the United States 

Nixon illegally impounded 
funds, amounting to $40 billion. 

He authorized burglaries of the 
Democratic National Committee 
offices in Washington and Miami, 
and a psychiatrist's office in 

Nixon established secret White 
House police, who engaged in 
unlawful activities. 

Nixon and former Attorney 
General John Mitchell were 
bribed by ITT. Nixon was bribed 
into supporting higher milk 
prices and sought to bribe the 
Ellsberg trial judge. 

Nixon participated in tax 

He spent public funds for his 
personal benefit. 

"Dirty tricks" 

By approving a campaign of' 
'dirty tricks,"' he undermined 
the free American electoral 

Nixon has abused and 
corrupted Federal agencies, 
including the IRS, CIA, and 
Justice Department. 

Lastly, Thorne charges that 
Nixon has tried to undermine the 
American Constitutional 
guarantee of a free press when he 
ordered newsmen wiretapped, 
subpoenaed, and prosecuted. 

Thorne declared, "If Mr. Nixon 
is not the greatest arch-criminal 
ever to occupy any Federal office 
. . . then Nixon has to be the 
stupidest, most inept man ever to 
occupy the office. On either 
county he's impeachable." 

"We lake all the crimes, which 
go under the head of Watergate, 
and we combine them with the 
attacks upon the free press . . . 
and we add to it Mr. Nixon's 
attempts to water down the 
Supreme Court of the United 
Stales with mediocre men 
and we add also the 'dirty tricks' 
and all the methods used to 
destroy elections in this country, 
by which the people can freely 
choose their own representatives, 
and we add illegal im- 
poundments, which . . . have 
been declared illegal in thirty 
court cases to date, and involve 
some forly billion dollars to fight 
cancer, to provide housing for the 
poor, to provide funds for the 

aged and other social needs. 
"Obstruction of justice" 

When we lake this and we 
throw into il massive obstruction 
of justice, and orders to 
prosecutors not to prosecute, so 
that a judge (Federal Judge 
Sirica) feels compelled to say in 
court, "why aren't the 
prosecutors asking questions of 
these witnesses? Why must I 
phrase questions to them?' And 
when we add, still further, that a 
special prosecutor is appointed 
because of the Congress, and that 
prosecutor is fired when he gets 
loo close to where the bodies are 
buried, what we are left with, 
after all these attacks on our 
system, is an attempt to subvert 
the basic freedoms and political 
process of the United States of 
America. That is the real 
significance of Watergate." 

Thorne further explained, 
"Nixon has, by all of these at- 
tacks and all of these strikes, 
attempted a bloodless coup. He 
has attempted to overthrow the 
America that you and I grew up 

"This is, in essence, what 
Nixon has tried to do : he has tried 
to weaken all of the other powers 
in this nation and invest himself 
with those powers." 

Thorne is disappointed that 
impeachment proceedings have 
not already begun. "... for 
almost any one of these items 
that I've mentioned . . . Richard 
Nixon would be impeachable in 
the United Stales Constitution. 
For all of them together, 1 con- 
sider il a great failing of our 
system that he has not yet been 

Presidential power growing" 

According to Thorne, if the 
American public continues to let 
the power of the President grow, 
it will give unlimited power to 
those Presidents who follow

Dymally makes Bid for 
Lieutenant Governorship 


Thursday, November 15 Stale 
Senator Mervyn Dymally an- 
nounced that he will be running 
for Lt. Governor of California at 
the Conejo Democratic Club 

He will make an official an- 
nouncement of his candidancy at 
Ihe end of December. 

In his address to Ihe Conejo 
Democratic Club, Dymally 
proposed thai a candidate for Lt. 
Governor should "talk of 
reconciliation between blacks 
and whites, rich and poor." He 
staled that he would be an 
"advocate for the people — a 
bridge between those who feel 
alienated from government and 
alienation in the government." 

Dymally has been involved in 
politics for ten years. He 
established two bills dealing with 
one-man, one-vote, authored the 
Equal Rights Amendment and 
co-authored the Dymally-Sieroty 
Act of 1968 which provided $2 
million to build child care centers 
lor low income families. 

He is a member of the Joint 
Committee for Legal Equality for 
Women and the Senate Select 
Committee for Children and 
Youth. He has also served on the 
Committee for Child Abuse and 
on Project Loophole, a group that 
discovered the governor and 241 
other people in the state of 
California did not pay income 
taxes and tried to close up tax 

"Watergate damaging 
to everyone" 

Dymally feels Watergate had 
damaged Democrats as much as 
it has Republicans. He feels il has 
hurt the entire political process 
and advocates that as Lt. 
Governor "the first job is to 
restore public confidence in the 
political process." 

Dymally hopes to develop job 
opportunities and explore land 
use policies as a member of the 
Land Commission. 

The Lt. Governor is also seated 
on the Energy Commission 
Council and Dymally boasted of 
being the first to bring up the 
question of atomic energy in 
public. He also questions if there 
is a "real" energy crisis when 
crude oil production has in- 
creased by 5 per cent, but oil 
reiinement has decreased. 

The Senator intends to develop 
an adequate health care program 
in California for the "working 
poor" or middle class incomes. 
He also plans on investigating Lhe 
feasibility of the Rapid Transit 

systems to enable the Ventura, 
San Bernardino, and Orange 
counties to move through Los 
Angeles easily. 

"Open university doors" 

As the Lt. Governor is head of 
the Board of Regents and Board 
of Trustees for the California 
University system, Dymally 
would extend an "open-door 
policy" to all students regardless 
ol race, creed, or color. 
Education should be included for 
working adults in his opinion. 

Facilities could be open on 
week-ends and credit given for 
time spent in the service and on- 
the-job training to accomodate 
these people. 

Dymally calls for a "fourth 
segment" of schooling — com- 
munity colleges, state colleges, 
universities, and "a university 
without walls" as an alternative 
plan of education. 

He also commented that il was 
strange how our country spent 
millions of dollars to aid Israel by 
providing guns, but raised the 
tuition in universities here for 
foreign students. 

"Kennedy spirit" 

Dymally expressed thai the Lt.

but can articulate the problems

communicating with people. He 
maintained that what was needed 
was "a return to the spirit of the

Alter meeting with Thousand 
Oaks' Democrats, Dymally had 
plans to altend a fund-raising 
project for lhe state of Israel and 
travel to San Diego that night. He 
will travel to England and Israel 
to gain a better understanding of

The CUB will attempt to help 
arrange CLC van or station 
wagon runs to LAX and Burbank 
during holiday periods. If you 
need a ride — come to the CUB 
and we will look for students who 
need rides at similar times. The 
charge will run between $2-$3, 
depending on the number of 
passengers. For further in-

Five CLC students were recently noti- 
fied that their poems had been ac- 
cepted for publication in the Nation- 
al Anthology of College Poetry. They 
are (from left): Toni Fisher, "Angels 
of God;"' Jerry Sawitz, "Death of a 
Friend;" Chris Grimm, "New Dreams;" 
James T. Santor, "To Satan... a Bas- 
tard;" Terri Fisher, "Sonnet." (Photo

We Need All the 
Help We Can Get 


During the final week of the semester, we as students are being 
doled out more than our share of pressures: finals, last minute tests 
and papers due, preparations for Christmas, campus activities like 
Lucia Bride and Christmas concerts. 

In the past, some of these pressures were reduced by an in- 
stitution called "Dead Week." 

Usually, the five to seven days preceding the first day of finals 
\w\o designated as "Dead Week." Several restrictions went into 
effecl ;ii this time. 

First of all, quiet hours were extended to twenty-four hours per 
day. making it easier tostudy in the dorms. 

Next, campus activities were curtailed almost completely, with 
the exception of study break type activities and perhaps a Saturday 
night event. 

Activities like Lucia Bride were held before "Dead Week." 

Also, professors were asked to schedule as many tests and papers 
as possible before "Dead Week" and to schedule as few as possible 
during that week so that students would have time tostudy for their 
finals rather than writing last minute papers or studying for 

Thissystem took as much pressure as possible off students while 
studying for finals and gave them more of an opportunity to do well. 

I, for one, would like to see "Dead Week" reinstituted. I think 
that doing so would be in the interests of the academics of this

While sitting here in my living 
room reading some of Nikki 
Giovanni's poetry (Black 
Feeling. Black Talk, Black 
Judgment. My House) it has just 
occurred to me what she is ac- 
tually saying in it. 

She is speaking partly of a time 
when we as a black people can 
truly interact together in all 
aspects of "American Society" 
(i.e. music, art, government, the 
theater and all other levels of 
aesthetic and political 
enlightenment), but more im- 
portant, she is talking of a time, 
which must be far ahead in our 
space and time, when we as "all 
people" can interact together. 

I would like to thank everyone 
who worked on the production of 
the Effect of Gamma Rays on 
Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds 
including the cast who built the 
set over the Thanksgiving 

I would also like to thank those 
people who did not work and 
cooperate on the production for 
their non-cooperation, non- 
participation and non-

This year a few people might be 
shocked when they go to a 
basketball game and see that 
there is a different set of cheer- 

This new policy is a result of 
Pep Commission constitutional 
change made last year. We now 
elect a new set of cheerleaders 
for the Fall Sports. 

The change was made because 
it was felt that this would serve 
both Fall and Winter Sports 
belter with a more enthusiastic 

But the problem we ran into 
with this idea was the lack of girls 
trying out. The strangest thing 
was not the lack of support for the 
idea but that no one was willing to 
take the initiative. 

Everyone was willing to sit 
back and let someone else do it. I 
talked to many people about 
running for cheerleader. 

The classic reason for not 
trying out was that they were 
afraid of losing or they were not 
good enough. But a lot of them 
had some great ideas which could 
have been a help to any squad. 

So consequently only four girls 
showed enough interest to tryout 
for five available positions. That 
is why there were no tryouts and 
the student body did not vote for 
the squad. 

In many ways this situation 
characterizes the attitude now 
present at this school. Students 
back ideas with their mouths and 
not their actions. Students want 
to see new things but it is the 
same old students doing the new 
things. All of this stems from the 
problem that students are willing 
to sit back and let someone else 
do the work. 

We need more people willing to 
try even if they do fall on their 
face. Only in this manner will we 
have an effective student body. A 
group has its leaders, but when 
they have to do everything it 
weakens them. 

So I really hope in the future 
students will take more of an 
initiative with ideas. Do not let 
ideas sit idle in your mind but put 
them into action. Do not just give 
them to someone else but take the 
initiative to carry them out. Only 
by doing this can we have an 
effective student body.

The role of the media in politics has been a focal point of con- 
troversy ever since television became an American institution. 

Is ii by coincidence that the cover of Joe McGinniss' book, The 
Selling of Hie President 19S8, has the picture of a cigarette pack 
wiih Nixon's smiling face on the package? 

Is ii by coincidence t hat the "Equal Time Law" came into being? 
Does politics control the media? Does the media control politics? 
Are I hey synonymous? 

Public opinion is the most amazing and unpredictable 
phenomenon. Before his recent speech on Watergate, the 
President's popularity was below fifty percent. One day later, his 
popularity was above the fifty percent mark. The President had 
effectively utilized the media. 

During the 1950's, political strategists realized the importance of 
television. One of television's strongest points was the ability to sell 
products on massive levels. 

To be elected, the candidate had to groom and project an image. 
It was only nat ural t hat a union of polit ics and television be formed. 
Witness I he film The Candidate. 

"Style becomes substance. The medium is the massage 
and l he masseur gets the votes. 

In office loo, the ability to project electronically is 
essential. We were willing to forgive John Kennedy his Bay of 
Pigs; we followed without question the perilous course on 
which he led us when missiles were found in Cuba; we even 
lolerai ed his calling of Reserves for the sake of a bluff about 

We forgave, followed, and accepted because we liked the 
way he looked. And he had a pretty wife. Camelot was fun, 
even for I he peasants, as long as it was televised to their huts. 

Then came Lyndon Johnson, heavy and gross, and he was 
forgiven nothing. He might have survived the sniping of the 
displaced intellectuals had he only been able to charm. But 
no one laughl him how. Johnson was syrupy. He stuck to lens. 
There was no place for him in our culture." 


In 1960, Nixon was almost president, but he could not project the 
glamorous image that Kennedy did. He was too sharp, too serious, 
loo intense, loo uptight. Kennedy's charisma shone like the Eastern 
Siar. II was Marshall McLuhan's opinion that, "Without TV, Nixon 
had ii made." 

The 1968 election brought forth a new Richard Nixon. He knew 
that image projection was not his strong point and shied away from 
i he camera when possible. He hit like dynamite on the issues of law 
and order and the Soviet threat. He became the Prophet when the 
Sovieis invaded Czechoslovakia. Richard Nixon had learned the

More Steak 


I guess I'm one of those "SOME 
people on campus" who are 
"apathetic to campus activities. " 
I also suppose my lack of concern 
could be a direct result of 

It is nice to know that the 
Athletic Department buys the 
steaks that are consumed the 
mornings of football games. But 
it isn't as comforting to 
remember that the money in that 
department's budget is only a 
part of the whole CLC budget. So 
indirectly it is the school and not 
only the Athletic Department 
that pays for the meat in 

Recently there have been many 
cutbacks in CLC's expenditures; 
perhaps in lieu of this, there 
should be a re-evaluation of the 
Athletic Department's spendings 
and priorities. 

I can see the necessity of the 
football players having steaks on 
game days. But I still fail to see 
any necessity for those young 
men who are somehow "involved 
with the football team" having 

I realize that I can probably 
never make the football team; 
after all, have you ever heard of a 
five foot inch-and-a-half, hundred 
and twenty-five pound fullback? 

What I'd like to know is where 
do I apply to become a coach's 


• • • 

Dear Editor: 

This letter is in reply to that 
poor college student who has 
evidently spent too much time in 
a football helmet. This is the boy 
who stated that in order to 
amount to anything on this 
campus I needed to be on the 
football team. To make this 
easily understandable for him, 
and his peers, I will try to keep 
my vocabulary down to words 
with four letters. 

Let me first state that I enjoy 
watching a good football game. I 
am also in favor of a school spirit 
using a football team as a 
rallying post. I am opposed, 
however, to a "Christian 
College" that places emphasis on 
neither "Christian" nor 
"College" but instead on this 
corp of self-acclaimed Atlases. 

When you tell me that a young 
boy, coach's son or not, does 
more for this school by being a 
water-boy than those who are 
trying to their education, I get a 
little upset. When you then 
question my list of priorities, I 
get mad. When you tell me I have 
to work for the football team to 
warrant a steak, I can only laugh 
at your stupidity. 

We are NOT California Foot- 
ball Academy. We are California 
Lutheran College, a Christian 
establishment for higher 
education. We are here first to 
get thai education, and 
somewhere much lower on the 
priority list, a place where we 
must be servants to a group of 
clowns whose only goal is to move 
a piece of leather one hundred 
yards on a section of marked-up 

I object to the football team 
eating steak when the rest of us 

are forced to eat lesser quality 
meals. I am dismayed that the 
money for the steaks, which you 
claim is from the Athletic 
Department budget, is still in 
reality money taken from the 
students' fees to the school. I do 
not feel that your ability to play 
football should elevate you to 
these privileges. I do feel that the 
money could be used in a better 
way if it was used to strengthen 
the educational and Christian 
section of this school instead of 
pampering a select group. 

Drama at CLC 
for Experts? 

Dear Editor: 

My sister has recently been 
cast in an off-campus show but 
the letters of Mark Moody and 
Charlotte Rump in the last ECHO 
issue have nearly convinced me 
that I shouldn't see it as I 
wouldn't get anything out of it. I 
have thought on it and am nearly 
ready to accept il hut how should 
I explain this to a motley but dear 
crew of friends? After all. we're 
in this together. I foresee, if I 
ever get the nerve, something 


No . . .we shouldn't go 
'cause. . well. . we just 
aren't Theater People 
. . .Look, I didn't major in 
Drama or English and you 
guys didn't even go to 
college — what'a we know 
about theater anyway? 
. . .Now don't get upset 
. . You don't understand 
You see, it doesn't mat- 
ter if she's good or not 
Nope, it just doesn't 
make any difference 
. . .Nah, we'd miss the 
point anyways . . .Yeah, 
like dummies . . .You said 
it. I didn't . . It's hard 
t'xplain but like we'd think 
one thing was going on 
. . mainly because that's 
going on . . .you know what 
I mean . . No, not at all 
. . something else 
different. . .going on all 
the time . . Dunno . . .We 
can't see it 'cause we don't 
have any experience 
. . . Well, picky, theater 
experience, then . .1 know 
you are, but that's only 
worse . . .How're you 
gonna figure it right if you 
get emotions all mixed in? 
. . Yeah, yeah . . .experts, 
I guess . . .Experts 
Don't know hut they 
sure got the goods on us 
. . It's probly written for 
'em. . . 

Oh! but they're so sensitive, 
these friends of mine — and very 
stubborn — every last one of 
them. Perhaps if I describe my 
last theater experience — 
Streetcar — by a supposedly 
excellent playwright whom I've 
never read. Charlotte Rumph 
says, (and if anyone knows, she 
does), that the play has con- 
tinuity. I'll take her word for it 
but, honestly (speaking only for 
the Saturday night per- 
formance), the connecting 
strands were way over head. Like 
I missed the message behind 
Blanche upstaging herself in her 
opening scene. I got, "You're not 
welcome," but that, I'm sure, 
couldn't have been it, could if 
"Floating dialects" 
The use of floating dialects 
may have meant something to 
many. Perhaps it was an 

ingenious device to draw out the 
subtext? But it duped me. 
"Jean," I thought, "what is 
Stanley trying to say by speaking 
here with a Southern dialect, 
there with something ap- 
proaching Bronx, and here with 
good ol' Conejo— not only 
changing from sentence to sen- 
tence, but split second mid- 
sentence shifts? Amazing ... but 
what are you saying, Stanley?" 
This technique was used by most 
of the Derformers. 

Blanche, through her noted 
hours of work, achieved an in- 
teresting contrast by developing 
a dialect true to the region. 
That's great . . .but my 
unlearned ears have much 
trouble with foreign dialects 
unless they are well articulated. 
You see what a spot that left me 
in, her being the lead and all. 
However, credit goes where 
credit is due and if Blanche is as 
complex a character as Charlotte 
Rump says she is (and I do 
believe she knows), then credit 
goes to the fine actress for 
delivering such a duplicity. As a 
student of economics I appreciate 

"Shatters stereotype*" 

The production did have im- 
pact for it shattered many of my 
stereotype notions to bits and 
pieces. There I was, though I 
should know better, still mildly 
swayed toward the sicky notion 
that all Southerners are s-1-ooo-w. 
Streetcar set me straight by 

showing me Southerners capable 
of ticking off three acts at a 
lickety-split pace — and in such 
hot weather! My old notion of the 
poker game went out the window 
as well. If a player wanted a beer, 
he'd actually wait until his poker- 
mate finished speaking before 
making his request, thus 
avoiding any nasty interruptions. 
Amy Vanderbilt is alive and well 
in the French Quarter! Finally, 
hitting directly on one of my most 
firmly planted stickler ideas was 
the discovery of the unmotivated 
rapist. Without help it could have 
taken me years to imagine such a 

So, that's what I got out of it. 
How does this vie with Mark (he 
knows theater) Moody's 'fire and 
eloquence', and Charlotte (she 
knows theater). Rumph's 'fluid 
continuity'? It's different? Yes. 

"Those who know" 

Too bad and double boo hoo for 
me because now I'm starting to 
feel a bit sensitive and a little 
stubborn myself. Really, 
Dahling, should my friends and I 
forget theater because we can't 
agree with "those who know?" 
Should we continue to affront 
those who are qualified in 
theater criticism? Why do I ask? 
Because . . . 

Taffy Walker, being an obvious 
know-not, stepped way out of line 
and actually reviewed Streetcar. 
Her review appeared after the 
production's run was over — a 
production that played to a full 

house each night and was graced 
by standing ovations and the 
especial nicety of applause after 
each scene from Act II on. With 
nerve she reviewed it, told what 
she saw and what she missed 
(and very kindly, too). For this 
she gets panned by those who 
really know what theater's about. 
Taffy . . left, right, left, left 
. . .you're confusing us. 

Mark Moody said (and I hope 
he knows) that, "To say that 
Streetcar was Stella's tragedy is 
to completely miss the play's 
major emphasis," — could be — 
but it's right on the button for 
this production! I'll be the first to 
admit I missed the point — but 
then, I haven't read the play. 
Should I have to? 


Editor, I don't really expect you 
to be able to help me with this 
problem so my three questions 
are directed to Charlotte Rumph 
(how can we know if she 

1. How is one's acting ability 
"qualified" by an award? by 

2. What is this American 
Collegiate Theater Guild to 

score' and 'rank' any theater 

3. When and if such 'scores' and 
ranks' do come down from the 

powers that be, what are they 
worth 9 (My guess: Critique 
sheets are at least helpful for 
theater. Scores and ranks could 
kill it dead.) 

When we leave a decidedly 
enjoyable campus concert, 
lecture, or play, and are ex- 
ploding enthusiastically with a 
compulsion to describe the event 
to our associates, as though they 
didn't know a thing about the 
event, we acknowledge sub- 
consciously our description of 
others around us as being less 
than culturally conscious. 

The significance of this is 
meliorated by our discovery that 
most of our friends did, in fact, 
enjoy the very same per- 
formance, and often are equally 

Such has been a common ex- 
perience at CLC. In fact most 
students and faculty have 
already discovered what a 
tremendous culture center CLC is 
to both the campus and the 
Conejo Valley as well. 

Our music has included the 
Conejo Symphony Young 
Peoples' Concert, sponsored by 
the Janss Foundation in October, 
and the Inauguration en- 
tertainment including both the 
Pops Concert of October 28 and 
the versatile Dance Concert, both 
under the direction of Mr. Elmer 

The French Chamber Or- 
chestra on November 2 and the 
November 17 opening of the CLC 
— Conejo Symphony were ex- 
cellent and well received. 
Soloists, Betty Shirey Bowen and 
Virginia Bartold on violin and 
viola, respectively, in the 
"Mozart Symphonie Concertant" 
were the highlight of the evening. 

On December 8 and 9 the entire 
Music Department will be of- 
fering a Christmas festival 
presented by the Orchestra, 

Band, Choir and String En- 
semble. The Concert, a gift to the 
Conejo community by the Music 
Department, will include Tower 
Music by the brass ensemble, the 
concert choir with the All College 
Choir in processional, followed by 
the Christmas Story by Hugo 
Distler, the string ensemble, the 
string quartet, and a flute solo by 
Melissa Putnam accompanied by 
Professor Carl B. Swanson. The 
program will continue with the 
Concert Band, and end with 
Christmas carols arranged and 
directed by Professor Elmer 
Ramsey. Soloists will include Sue 
Simcox, George Willey, Ray 
Hebel, Jim Kasten, Jim Wilber, 
Destene Hammond, Nancy Buck- 
pitt, and the Kingsman Quartet. 
The Direction will be by Dr. 
Robert Zimmerman. 

Professor Zimmerman will 
again employ some of the 
numbers we enjoyed during the 
Friday series on creative arts 
and will involve all of the Music 
groups, including the String 
Ensemble, directed by Betty 
Shirley Bowen. 

Another exciting area of CLC's 
performing arts is that presented 
by the Drama Department. The 
Church Drama program, under 
direction of Mrs. Dudley, has 
played for churches in Asilomar 
and Santa Maris this semester. 
Childrens' Theater, supervised 
and directed by Dr. Adams, is 
entering its seventh year and has 
the support of the American 
Association of University 

The CLC theater performed for 
2300 children and before the State 
Department Youth Authority 
Ventura School in Camarillo. A 

Streetcar Named Desire entered 
the American College Theatre 
Festival and is rated by most 
judges as a serious contender for 
national award largely because 
of the professional lead role by 
June Drueding, but also because 
of the strong organization by Don ' 
Haskell and strong support cast 
of Barry Ybarra, Joyce 
McGreevy, Charlotte Rumph, 
and Chuck Connor. 

Dr. Richard Adams, who 
recently led a group to the 
Southern California Educational 
Theater Association in Palm 
Springs, was elected President of 
the association. He also is in- 
volved in the Conejo Future 
Cultural Center Task Force as its 

The TV - Radio studio has been 
developed and will be in 
operation in the spring semester. 
The Drama Department also 
entered into its third year with 
the College Commentary — a bi- 
weekly radio program on KNJO. 

This last week the Marigolds 
was a sell-out success under the 
direction of Donald H. Simmons. 
Lead performance by Charlotte 
Rumph and support by Joyce 
McGreevy, Vicki Blume, Joyce 
Howard, and Judy Standerfer 
were all first rate, and the school 
felt the satisfaction of quality 

These events are part of an 
interrelated process of steady 
growth in the performing arts at 
CLC and have and will continue 
to demonstrate the college is the 
cultural center of the Conejo. It is 
well that all of us take time out to 
pay respect to these performers.

J Saving on Utilities { 


Money always seems to be a problem, especially around 
Christmas. Thai means that if you spend more than you anticipate 
for the holidays and get less than you expect, you'll feel it af- 
terwards. One place you might feel it is in your household budget. 
Rather than starve, you can cut down on your electric, gas, water 
and telephone bills and also help with the energy crisis. 

Practical suggestions (adapted from Good Housekeeping) for 
culling down on utilities include: 

ELECTRICITY— Turn off lights, appliances and television sets 
when they are not in use. This is especially important in the case of 
heal -producing items, such as ranges and irons, because they use 
more electricity than non-heat producers such as lights and fans. 
—If you have an electric dishwasher, try to do an entire day's 
dishes at once, rather than doing them after each meal. 

—Keep your refrigerator defrosted and the coils free of dust and 
dirt . Be sure that the door gasket seals properly. 

GAS — If you have a warm-air heating system, have the blower 
adjusted so that it runs almost constantly in cold weather. This 
keeps warm air circulating and prevents the formation of cold 
spots in the house. Be sure that the furnace filters are clean. 
—Lock windows in cold weather. They fit tighter when locked. 
—Do not set your thermostat above what you consider the 
comfort level. Many people overheat their homes. 

—Do not place draperies or furniture where they will interfere 
with the flow of warm air. 

WATER — Have the landlord fix leaking faucets. Leaks are the 
greatest single cause of water waste in the home. A small leak can 
wast e up to 15 gallons a day ; a large leak up to 400 gallons. 

—Don't let water run unnecessarily. When washing dishes by 
hand, use a stopper or basin. Allowing water to run while you wash 
may waste up to 30 gallons a meal. 

—Take showers instead of baths, if practical. The average 
shower consumes 25 gallons whereas the average bath uses 36. 

TELEPHONE — The telephone company advises customers to 
place long distance calls an non-peak hours (between 5 p.m. and 8 
a.m. weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.) Regardless of 
when you call the calls are cheaper when you make the calls 
yourself. Direcl dialing always costs less than operator handled 

—Direct dialing, day (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday) is the 
most expensive lime lo make a call. Direct dialing, evening (5 p.m. 
lo 11 p.m. Sunday thru Friday) is less expensive. The cheapest time 
lo make a long distance call dialing direct is after 11 p.m. Sunday 
thru Friday and all day Saturday.

check inlo an extended service line. For a flat rale each month you 
may make as many calls as you want to that number. 

NIXON. . . 

Cont from pg . 3 

Nixon. "The danger is that the 
next executive criminal in the 
office of the President will suc- 
ceed. And that is why Nixon must 
be impeached: to restore and 
restate the rule of law in this 
nation, and to restate the fun- 
damental principles of the United 
Stales Constitution." 

For those unclear as to the 
meaning of impeachment, 
Thorne offered this clarification. 
"It is designed to take a man out 
of office who, by his own inep- 
titude or crimes, has made 
himself a danger to the Republic. 
That's all it requires. The man 
need not be a criminal. In this 
case I think we have one, though 
... he can simply be dumb, as 
Mr. Nixon apparently claims he 

"Clear and present danger" 
"I think Richard Nixon is the 
clear and present danger to our 
society that requires im- 
peachment. Or in five or ten 
years, or fifteen years, or some 

other period of lime, very close, 
not loo far in the future, elections 
may be suspended, the press may 
finally be muzzled, the networks 
totally controlled, and you will 
need a pass to travel from 
Thousand Oaks lo Anaheim. And 
then it would be too late ..." 

After Agnew's resignation and 
the dropping of forty charges 
against him, Thorne gave serious 
thought to the charges that might 
face Nixon. "I once tried to list 
the possible charges against 
Richard Nixon. It's so involved 
and so complicated that I slopped 
at around twenty-five pages. In 
my opinion it would take hun- 
dreds and hundreds of pages to 
list the possible charges." 

Finally, as to the question of 
Nixon resigning from office, 
Thorne responded, "In my 
opinion Mr. Nixon will not resign 
in his office . . . until he has made 
a deal like his former Vice 
President, Agnew, and has found 
someone with whom he can make 
a deal, who will not be tried on 
criminal charges."

This year's Homecoming saw a 
few disappointments, but overall 
it was a success. According to 
Harry Griffith, senior class 
president, the Homecoming 
dance was "outstanding and the 
best dance CLC has ever had in 

There was a large turn-out and 
as many as ten people from the 
tirsl graduating class of 65 at- 
tended. Mag Wheels and the Lug 
Nuts played and Limbo dances 
were performed. 

To start off the Homecoming 
weekend, the sophomore class 
had a pumpkin seed exchange 
scavenger hunt on Wednesday. 
First prize of $4 went to Brian 
Webbers' team. Tom LePage's 
team won second place honors 
and $2. 

Thursday afternoon the frosh- 
soph football game was held. Al 
Waite was proud to report the 
sophomores won with a score of 
12-0. Jerry Cox made both of the 
sophomore touchdowns and 
received the Most Valuable 
Player award. 

Saturday morning a wide 
variety of activities were 
available for the students. 
Although no one cared to try the 
hoola-hoop competition, 
skateboard and carl races had 
enthusiastic participants. Dave 
Belknap won the first place prize 
of a poster by completing the 
skateboard course in 40 seconds 
flat. Greg Uthus ran a close 
second with a time of 40.2 
seconds. In the cart races Becky 
Wolfe of the Sociology Depart- 
ment won first place and $15. Kay 
Famin won second place with 
Dave Olson as the sponsor. 
Kramer 8 won third place with 
Marshall Bowen driving. The 
alumni came in fourth place and 
Jeff Aslin of Kramer 3 won fifth 
place. Second through fifth place 
each won $5 for their efforts. 

In the dorm decoration com- 
petition Beta won first place. Dr. 
Johnson, Miss Renick, and Mr. 
Steepee were judges. Mountclef 
and Kramer did not enter the 
competition this year. 

The CLC stage band performed 
during half-time of the game and 
Ray Hebel sang an Elvis Presley 
song. Courtesy Chevrolet 
provided the cars for the queen 
and princesses. The Kingsman 
was again present, thanks to 
Stephanie Foster. 

Those people who helped 
produce a successful 

Homecoming were Shirley 
Fugate, Homecoming chairman 
and her committee as follows: 
Doug Uyehara, Roger Johnson, 
Rick Rezac, Jeanine McKeown, 
Cindy Roleder. Neilene Hiepler, 
Carl Nielsen, Harry Griffith and 
Sandy Evenson. Dean 

Kraglhorpe and Al Kempfert 
advised the committee. This year 
there was no faculty advisor. 

II there is anyone interested in 
helping on the Homecoming 
Committee next year, they 
should call Shirley Fugate at 495-

Jack and the Beanstalk 
Found to be Entertaining 


Children are always a difficult 
audience to play to, but the cast 
of Jack and the Beanstalk seems 
to have done it well. A children's 
play is at least, I think, seventy 
percent successful if the players 
can hold their own against the 
waves of restlessness put up by 
an audience of kids. 

With the right combination of 
action, simplicity and ingenuity, 
the cast of Jack and the Bean- 
stalk has done an admirable job 
of holding the children's attention 
and giving a good performance of 
a favorite fairy tale. 

The biggest asset of the script 
was its length of approximately 
40 minutes. Coupled with the 
right amount of action ap- 
propriately spaced, the children 
rarely had time to find other 
diversions, as they are often wont 
to do. 

Dr. Adams' direction made 
sure there was always something 
to keep attentions from straying. 
The sets were well designed and 
kept functional throughout.

"Nuclear testing" 

In regards to France's testing 
ol nuclear weapons in the at- 
mosphere, Broc staled plainly : U 
France sees nuclear weapons as 
a deterrent force and 2) France 
will continue her ex- 
pei unenlation. At Ihe moment, 
Fiance has Iwo Polaris sub- 
marines with three under con- 

Two interrelated points, as far 
as France is concerned are the 
war in the Middle Easl and the 
energy crisis. 

Il was first pointed out that 
Fiance welcomes the detenle in 
Hit- Middle East, partly because 
ol her dependency on the Middle 
East for 

France is also concerned about 
the Middle East crisis because 
this situation points out rather 
blatantly that two super-powers, 
the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., are 
controlling international politics 
with force. 

Economically, France and the 
Common Market are doing well, 
with the inclusion of Great 

A surprising performance was 
given by June Dreuding, whose 
comic portrayal of the giant's 
wife was also appealing to the 
adults. Liz Connors, as a very 
innocent Jack, was by far the 
best singer of the cast. 

Chuck Connors was an im- 
pressive, but somewhat con- 
fusing giant. A conflict of 
characteristics between 
"cruelty" and stupidity within 
the role of the giant needed to be 
worked out. His singing could 
have used more projection. 

Dave Streetz and Terry 
Hassmeyer gave good per- 
formances as the butcher and 
Jack's mother respectively. 
Becky Jewell's accompaniment 
on the piano was played well and 
presented a suitable frame 
around the play. 

It is to be hoped that future 
Children's Theater productions 
will be as good as Jack and the 
Beanstalk. The efforts of these 
people are a great resource in 
building and cementing good, 
supportive relationships with the 
surrounding communities. 

Britain being a positive factor. 
"Women's Lib" 

Speaking on the progress of the 
Women's Liberation Movement 
in France, Broc's initial response 
was that France is "not con- 
laminated yet". Looking at Ihe 
issue more seriously, he related 
that the movement in France has 
really just begun and that, in his 
opinion, the roles of women in 
France are too low. 

The final issue raised was one 
concerning Article 16 of the 
French Constitution. This Article 
gives Ihe President the power to 
dissolve Parliament at his 
discretion. Questioning this 
power, il was further asked if this 
provision could not provide an 
easy path lo dictatorship for the 

Broc answered the query by 
staling that a President would not 
dissolve the Parliament because 
he would face stern opposition 
and almost surely a hostile 
Parliament in the next election. 
He did admit though, in an ex- 
treme case, a President might 
exercise this power with am- 
bitions of becoming a dictator.

Kingsmen Drop First 
Homecoming to SLO 

Cal Baptist Squeezes Past Varsity 


The titles were impressive. A 
football team that was 8-0, that 
had won its conference handily, 
had a win streak of 16 games, 
offensively was the No. 1 rated 
team in the nation in Division II 
of the NCAA, and also was 
ranked fourth in those standings. 
California Polytechnic 
University at San Luis Obispo 
was all of these, and they showed 

The Mustangs, boasting a 37 
point per game scoring average 
and a likely repeat pick for the 
Camelia Bowl in Sacramento, 
snubbed the home Kingsmen at 
Mounlclef Stadium three weeks 
ago, setting an all time record for 
points scored against California 
Lutheran College, by winning 63- 

"Early play misleading" 
Early play was hardly in- 
dicative of the final rout, as the 
score was tied at 7-7 halfway 
through the first period. SLO had 
returned the opening kickoff to 
their own 31, and then 
systematically ground out 49 
yards to the Kingsmen 20, where 
a short field goal attempt missed. 
Poly got the ball right back, 
and this time succeeded in 
punching it across, marching 63 
yards in 11 plays, the capper a 
four yard burst by Quarterback 
Mike Coulson at 5:34. John Loane 
added the extra point, as well as 
all extra's throughout the game. 
The score stood at 7-0. 

The first of two interceptions 
slopped the Cal Lu drive at their 
own 35, but Bill Schwich returned 
the favor by picking off the only 
interception Coulson threw for 
the day al the 26. 

The Kingsmen enjoyed their 
best offensive effort of the day, as 
Bill Wilson marched the team all 
of 74 yards, executing a seven 
yard pass to Gary Hamm for the 
touchdown. Bob McAllistair 
added the extra point, and the 
SLO rooters were pretty quiet 
over the unexpected lie. 

This constituted the offensive 
threat of the day for CLC, even 
though the Lutheran footballers 
marched into SLO territory early 
in the second half. A field goal 
attempt backfired, and from 
there on in, SLO offensively lived 
up to and exceeded their average 
of 430 yards per game by an extra 

"Obispo domination" 
San Luis started their 
domination earlier. In fact, they 
began on their first possession 
following the CLC kickoff. CLC in 
its touchdown drive had con- 
sumed the remaining five 
minutes of the first quarter and 
the first three minutes of the 
second period before 

relinquishing the ball back to 
Poly. Poly was not to be outdone, 
as the Mustangs returned the ball 
back to the Kingsmen half a 
period and a touchdown later. 
Dan Caccavo scored the second 
of the nine touchdowns as he took 
an eight yard pass from Coulson. 
A poor punt snap set SLO up in 
good field position, and the 
number four rated team went 
back into the scoring business 
with Pete Hubbard rushing the 
remaining five yards and at 
halftime, San Luis enjoyed a 21-7 

The game looked like it would 
be tightened up as the CLC of- 
fense, through solid efforts of 
Gene Uebelhardt, Hank Bauer, 
Skip Piechocinski, and company, 
rushed down the field, but all 

momentum was lost with a 
missed field goal, and Poly then 
embarked on its 42 point binge. 
Pal Manus capped the first 
drive as he smashed into Ihe 
endzone, the final play a two 
yarder. The CLC offense 
resumed marching on SLO 
territory, but couldn't punch it 
across, and when CLC punts were 
necessary, CLC kickoff returns 
were also necessary, as Poly's 
offense could do little wrong. 

Matt Cavanaugh and Rocky 
Chapman scored the other two 
touchdowns in the third quarter 
for SLO, the only CLC score 
coming on one of the kickoff 
returns by CLC. Eddie Rulenz 
took a handoff, reversed his field, 
and went 92 yards without being 
touched, giving encouragement 
to Iko shell-shocked spectators 
who held CLC-oriented interests. 
McAllistair added the point and 
since the quarter had ended on 
the return, the score was 42-14. 
"Inexperience showed" 
Panic on the part of the 
Kingsmen showed itself, and so 
did the inexperience of several 
substitutes in the fourth and final 
quarter, as SLO marched to 
paydirt thrice, the scores by 
Chris Smeland, Dana Nafziger, 
and Chapman. 

Coach Robert Shoup revealed 
that San Luis had better depth, by 
pointing out that while Kingsmen 
substitutes showed inexperience, 
SLO subs were just as good or 
better than the starters. 

Coach Shoup added that he had 
started pulling players in the 
third quarter. He placed Gary 
Conner at left tackle, two fresh- 
men at linebackers, and one at 
tackle, besides replacing Bill 
Wilson at quarterback with 
Casey McLaughlin and placing 
Lester Haynes at the tailback 

"Wilson completes 
13 of 25" 

As for game statistics, Wilson 
passed 25 times, completing 13 of 
those for 126 yards with one 
touchdown and two interceptions. 
In rushing, Uebelhardt and 
Bauer led the team. 

The game certainly wasn't 
even, as statistics were twice as 
favorable to SLO than to the 
Kingsmen. Factors that gave 
victory had to include con- 
sideration of the unusually high 
rate of injuries that CLC has 
suffered. Several players played 
with or received injuries during 
the game. "Hank Bauer was 
playing with a torn cartilage, and 
Mark Scott received a con- 
cussion. He was the fourth 
linebacker injured this year," 
noted Coach Shoup. 

Shoup also thinks highly of the 
football team at San Luis Obispo 
and of their "wonder" coach. 
"They've established the best 
collegiate record in the last five 
years," praised Shoup. Joe 
Harper, Mustang coach, has been 
instrumental in this resurgence, 
as both he and Coach Shoup enjoy 
winning percentages around 74; 
which ties them for best 
Southland coaching records. 

But a loss is a loss, and this was 
the first one suffered in 
homecoming competition. In past 
years, the Kingsmen have 
defeated UC Riverside (7-0), 
Pomona -Pitzer (22-7), USF (15- 
12), Pomona-Pitzer (27-17), USIU 
(39-34), Pomona-Pitzer (37-24), 
Augustana-S.D. (27-17), Pacific

Though classified as a young 
and inexperienced team, the 
California Lutheran College 
Kinesmen almost pulled off an 
upset of the California Baptist 
College Lancers in the CLC Gym 
a week ago Monday night, but 
were edged 82-79 by the 
baskel bailers from Riverside. 

Wilh Gary Bowman, a junior 
who had led Ihe learn in scoring 
last year, shooting a career-high 
lolal of 36 points, Ihe Kingsmen 
jumped lo a 6-2 lead, extending 
their lead loan 11 point total of 27- 
16. in Ihe middle of Ihe first half. 

Bui through Ihe hot shooting of 
players Steve Johnson, Don 
Martinez, Kevin Finnerty and 
Steve Deering, Cal Baptist pulled 
back lo a one-point, 34-33 deficit 
al halftime.

The Cal Baptist players also 
fouled quite a bit, but a 65.7 per 
cent on free throws attempted 
and made by CLC was easily 
topped by Ihe 72 per cent mark 
set by the Baptists. Cal Baptist 
also lopped Ihe field goal per- 
centage of the Lutherans of 42.0 
per cent by 7.2 per cent. 

Bowman was 12-21 from the 
field, a 57 per cent conversion on 
shots, and even more im- 
pressively. 80 per cent from the 
free throw line, going 12-15. 

Others who took up the slack, 
and made solid contributions 
were Gino Dente who scored 12 
points, by going 4-15 from the 
field and 4 for 7 at the "charity" 
stripe, Guy Quails who went to 
Ihe bucket for 10 points, and Mike 
Prewill who scored 8 points. 

Odus Caldwell, Butch 
Eskridge, Dean Bradshaw, and 

Kingsmen Cream USIU in Strong 
Offensive Effort 

In one of their best offensive 
efforts of this season, the CLC 
Kingsmen smashed the 
Westerners of United States 
International University, 42-13. 

The offensive fireworks were 
supplied in a manner that CLC 
fans are somewhat unac- 
customed to, as a CLC running 
and power game are usually 

In the USIU game the offense 
shifted from the ground to the air 
as Bill Wilson connected on 8 of 13 
passes for 234 yards and tying a 
school record of four touchdown 

Primary receivers for Wilson 
were Gary Hamm and Butch 
Eskridge. Hamm caught 3 passes 
for 127 yards and two touch- 
downs, including a 93 yard touch- 
down grab that established a new 
school record. Eskridge caught 
two passes that were both good 
for touchdowns. 

Scoring was not limited to the 
first team as Casey McLaughlin 
came into the game to throw a 75 
yard touchdown pass to Dave 

Helping to set up the touchdown 
passes by the Lu quarterbacks 
was the fine running of the 
Kinsgmen backfield. Hank Bauer 
and Gene Uebelhardt accounted 
for over 130 yards on the ground 
and Uebelhardt scored a touch- 

Plaudits were not limited to the 
offense, as the Kingsmen defense 
turned in another fine game. 
Starling a defensive team with 
only one senior and sporting two 
freshman, the defense performed 

Tom Lendzion, Mark Scott, and 
Eddie Rulenz stood out on 
defense as far as tackles were 
concerned, each with at least 7 
unassisted tackles led by Rulenz 
with 10. Doug Rihn, Bart Gud- 
monson and Corky Ullman all 
had interceptions and Ullman 
joined Dave Stanley in 
recovering USIU fumbles. 

In recognition of his fine effort 
against USIU, Bill Wilson was 
awarded both the Southern 
California Sportwriters and 
Valley Player of the Week 

JV Basketball Loses 
First Game to CBC 

Many of the same problems of 
ball handling and fouls that 
plagued the Cal Lutheran varsity 
basketball squad also hampered 
the junior varsity squad, as the 
JVs lost 95,80 to their Cal Baptist 
College counterparts in a game 
last Monday night. 

Turnovers played a big part in 
the decision as the juniors 
committed 29 turnovers for CLC. 
Cal Baptist players proved just 
as generous with the ball, as the 
game started with four straight 
Lancer turnovers. But CLC got 
off to only a two point lead, and 
Cal Baptist quickly tied it up 
again. And so play went, until the 
halftime gun sounded and the 
scoreboard showed that the 
Lancers held a five point, 42-37 

Gerald Price, Sports In- 
formation Director, described it 
best, "A comedy of errors". But 

the Lancers stopped making 
errors in the second half to coast 
to victory, despite the solid ef- 
forts of Mike Webb and Greg 

Coach Wendall Smith critiqued 
the contest, "The junior varsity 
and the varsity are much alike. 
We need more help from the 
guards and better ball control all- 

Webb had 19 points for the 
contest after scoring only a point 
in the first half. Dineen and Chris 
Briscoe tied for second by each 
scoring 16 points. 

Besides better ball handling, 
help could have come from 
missing forward Lobitz. 

Tonight, the team plays against 
USIU at Thousand Oaks High 
School in a 6:00 p.m. tipoff, with 
Webb, Dineen, Panek, Lobitz, 
and Briscoe probably comprising 
the starting lineup. 

Duane Filer rounded out the 
scoring wilh 4, 4, 3, and 2 points 

As a team, the Kingsmen shot 
29-69 in field goal attempts 21-32 
al the free throw line, for 79 total 

For the Baptists, Johnson led 
ihe learn wilh 19 points, followed 
by Finnerty and Martinez who 
each scored 16 points, then 
Classen at 12, Deering at 8, Doug 
Howard wilh 6 points, Mike 
Vanla and R. Johnson wilh 2 
points, and lastly among scorers 
came Jim Muro with 1. 

Team statistics show that the 

Baptists were 32 for 65 in field 

goals and 18 for 25 at the free 

Ihrow line, for a total of 82 points. 

"High fouling" 

Fouling accounted for many of 
Ihe points scored. Four technical 
fouls were assessed to both 
benches in addition to the 49 
regular fouls. Three Kingsmen 
and one Lancer fouled out by the 
end of the game. Quails, Cald- 
well, and Dente were the un- 
fortunates for CLC and Howard 
suffered a similar fate on behalf 
of Ihe Lancers. 

But the excess fouls didn't 
draw nearly as much attention as 
Ihe four T's. Coach Don Bielke. in 
his first year and his first game 
as Kingsmen Coach, drew a 
technical by pointing out to the 
referee that certain backboard 
play should be considered 
goall ending. Gary Bowman drew 
the other CLC technical by 
talking lo the ref about a jump 
ball call. The two technicals 
charged against the visiting 
Baptists were bench technicals. 
These same fouls in the end 
played a very important part in 
ihe game, but Coach Bielke 
commented "I don't mind the 
fouls. As long as they are con- 
sistently called, I won't let it 
bother me. If you scream, they 
(Ihe refs) will lay for you". 
Fantastic rebounding 
But Ihe fouling and its im- 
portance were to a large point 
dimminished by the fantastic 
rebounding of the Kingsmen trio 
of Bowman, Dente. and Prewitt 
who accounted for 37 of the 
team's 48 rebounds. Caldwell got 
5 of Ihe remaining 11, 6 being 
classified as team rebounds. 

"I was kinda hoping for 58 
rebounds in a eame. but we got 
48," noted Coach Bielke. He 
added, "I was very satisfied as 
we held them to very few of- 
fensive boards. We completely 
dominated Ihem offensively". 

Despite domination in many 
ways by the Lutherans. Cal 
Baptist lacked up more points on 
the board. Coach Bielke ex- 
plained, "We gave them those 
shots (20-25 footers) in the first 
half. They missed, but came out 
in Ihe second half and hii" 

The 58 rebounds is a team goal, 
Anoi her goal for the year is lo hit 
48 per cent from Ihe field. "If we 
can shoot 48 per cent from the 
field consistently, we will win a 
lol of the ball games", remarked 
Coach Bielke. 

He noted thai "We had 18 
turnovers, and if a team converts 
just one-third of the opportunities 
Turnovers are critical. Early 
foul trouble and more shot op- 
portunities for the opponents will 

But Bielke thinks that the 
practice will pay off, and the 
team will become a solid, 
cohesive unit. "They're learning 
a lot of basketball in a hurry, and 
so therefore, I think we will be a 
successful basketball team"

Injury Plagued Kingsmen End Seesaw 
Season with Six Wins, Four Losses 

Coach Shoup's Kingsmen 
ended the season with a 6 and 4 
record. Briefly, the games went 
as follows. 

CLC 34- Alumni 22 

Kip Downen led a fourth 
quarter rally to edge the Alumni 
in the traditional season opener. 
The Kingsmen were threatened 
until linebacker Mike Crawford 
intercepted an R.T. Howell pass 
and scored with less than a 
minute to go. 

CLC 14 -Humboldt State 7 

Senior quarterback Downen 
had another good day. He drove 
his team to a surprising victory in 
the regular home season opener 
against Far West Conference 
Lumberjacks. This was the first 
meeting between the two teams 
and the Kingsmen win extended 
CLC dominance over Far West 
teams to 6-0. 

Sophomore Hank Bauer, who 
carried the ball 52 yds. in 12 
carries and senior Gene 
Uebelhardt, who carried 14 times 
for 43 yds., led the rushing. 
Uebelhardt scored first from one 
yard out. Butch Cskridge was 
credited with the winning touch- 
down on a 24 yd. pass from 
Downen with less than 3 minutes 
remaining in the third period. 
Downen completed 14 of 19 passes 
lor 146 yds. 


Five pass interceptions 
thwarted the gridders for most 
ol the afternoon against the 
Bulldogs. Behind 14-6, the 
Kingsmen filled the deficit with a 
one yd. run by Downen and a 
conversion run by Bauer. 

Kedlands broke the resultant 
lie i Lhe fourth quarter with 

a 21 yd aeriel by Chuck Horito lo 
Malone. Kedlands went on lo an 
8-1 season, capturing both the 
SCIAC and NAIA District III

San Francisco State 19- CLC 14 

Cal Lu lost more than the game 
on this gloomy Saturday in the 
Bay city. With CLC leading 14-13 
in the third quarter, Kip Downen 
ended his collegiate football 
career with a knee injury. State's 
Gators scored on the next set of 
downs but the Purple and Gold 
ol tense was unable lo complete a 

Uebelhardt led the rushers with

YBARRA Blasts Student Apathy and 
Administration in Resignation Speech 

Reverend Roland Bainton 

Festival of Life to 

Feature Noted 

Expert on Luther 

Noted Luther scholar, the 
Reverend Roland H. Bainton, 
Titus Street Professor Emeritus 
of Ecclesiastical History at the 
Yale University Divinity School, 
will be the guest lecturer at CLC 
from February 11 to 13. 

A dynamic speaker, the eighty- 
year-old educator will be making 
his ownly West Coast appearance 
this year at Cal Lutheran ac- 
cording to Pastor Gerald 
Swanson, who invited him to 
appear at the annual Joyous 
Festival of Life Week. His ap- 
pearance is under ths spon- 
sorship of the Thomas Staley 
Distinguished Christian Scholar 
Lecture Program. 

Bainton addressed an All 
College Convocation on Monday, 
February 11, on "Meet Martin 
Luther Through One of his Oldest 
Friends" and in the evening at 
7:30 p.m. in Nygreen Hall he 
spoke on "Luther and Erasmus." 

Today he is scheduled to meet 
with clergymen and their wives 
at 4:30 p.m. at a "Roundtable 
with Roland Bainton" in Nygreen 
Hall No. 1. The group will join 
him for supper at 6 p.m. in the 
Union Building. 

At 8:15 p.m. in the Auditorium 
he will speak on "Women and the 
Reformation" and the public is 
invited to attend. 

On Wednesday, February 13, 
he will give the meditation at the 
All College Worship Service at 

10: 10 a.m. in the Auditorium and 
in the evening he will speak on 
"Christ Through The Arts" at 
8:15 p.m. in the Auditorium. 

Rev. Bainton has been a 
member of the Yale faculty since 
1920 and specializes in Refor- 
mation history. 

Born in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, 
England, in 1894, he came to this 
country in 1902. He received his 
B.A. degree from Whitman 
College in 1914, and then went to 
Yale for advanced study. In 1917, 
he received his B.D. degree and 
in 1921, his Ph.D. degree. 

He served as an Instructor in 
Church History at Yale from 1920 
to 1923 when he became an 
Assistant Professor. In 1932, he 
was promoted to Associate 
Professor and to Titus Street 
Professor of Ecclesiastical 
History in 1936. He retired in 1962. 

An ordained Congregational 
minister, he is an affiliated 
member of the Society of 
Friends. He is the author of thirty 
books dealing with the history of 
the Christian church. Among the 
most widely known and used are 
The Church of Our Fathers, a 
history of the Christian church 
written for young people and a 
biography of Martin Luther Here 
1 Stand. 

Many of his books will be on 
sale at the CLC Book Shop during 
his campus appearance. 

Administrative moves to un- 
dermine student self- 
determination and the student 
leaders' lack of initiative in 
fighting those moves were two of 
the issues brought to the fore at a 
special Senate and Executive 
Cabinet meeting held to an- 
nounce the resignation of Barry 
Ybarra from his post as Com- 
missioner of Concert-Lecture. 

Ybarra will not be returning to 
CLC this semester because of 
financial reasons. 

According to Ybarra, the 
college administration, 
spearheaded by Dean Peter 
Ristuben, is making an effort to 
remove the decision-making 
concerning Concert-Lecture from 
the hands of the students and put 
it in the hands of the ad- 
ministration. He contends that 
since a large amount of the 
Concert-Lecture funds come 
from the students, they should be 
responsible for how the money is 

Ybarra claims that at the 
beginning of the year, Ristuben 
told him that he had been 
responsible for Concert -Lecture 
at Wagner College and that he 
wanted that responsibility at 

"Committee Formed" 

Recently, President Mark 
Mathews appointed a committee 
of Pastor Gerry Swanson, Dean 
Ron Kragthorpe and Ristuben to 
make reccommendations con- 
cerning the restructuring of 
Concert-Lecture. Ybarra was 
asked to make his rec- 

commendations to the com- 
mittee, but was not permitted to 
defend his reccommendations at 
the committee meetings. 

He claims that Ristuben is 
planning to make the Concert- 
Lecture Commissioner an ad- 
visory post and put all the power 
concerning programs into his 
own hands. 

Kragthorpe called to Ybarra's 
attention the fact that there is 
presently a committee composed 
of students, faculty and ad- 
ministrators that is supposed to 
be overseeing the Concert- 
Lecture Commission, but that its 
meetings were hastily called by 

Ybarra replied that Ms. 
Schelhous, the committee 
chairperson, didn't know how to 
go about organizing the com- 
mittee and had given him the 
authority to call meetings 

The committee's problems 
were intensified by the lack of 
existing records about committee 

'Cigarette Machines" 

Ybarra also cited the removal 
of the cigarette machines from 
the campus and the rationing of 
milk as examples of the ad- 
ministration's effort to reduce 
the power of the students. 

He expressed concern over the 
fact that student government has 
failed to show concern about 
these moves on behalf of the 
student body at large. 

According to Ybarra, the 
students should also be aware 
that a course on Obscenity and 

Pornography is being taught this 
spring in the Administration of 
Justice Department with two of 
the directors of the National 
Legal Data Center as lecturers. 
He contends that the students 
were assured that the college was 
not associated with the center, 
and that this course is evidence of 
a link between them. 

Kragthorpe mentioned that as 
the students' representative to 
the administration, he had felt 
hindered by the lack of input by 
the students. 

"Reaffirming Dedication" 

He reaffirmed his dedication to 
being an administrator in the 
quad, but an advocate of the 
students in the administration 

He also went on record as being 
the only member of the ad- 
ministration opposed to the 
removal of the cigarette 
machines from the campus. 

"Regarding the basic issue, 
Barry is right," affirmed 
Kragthorpe. "But," he added, 
"he isn't telling the whole story." 

Kragthorpe also strongly 
supported the speaking 

engagement of Troy Perry, 
author of The Lord is my 
Shepherd and He Knows I'm Gay. 
on campus. The engagement was 
recently cancelled by the ad- 

A number of other issues were 
aiscussed at the meeting, in- 
cluding new open house hours, 
decisions concerning graduation, 
the Orientation Committee, and 
misplaced milk machines. 

Koinonia Groups Hold Sign-up this Week 

Sign-ups for second semester 
Koinonia groups are being held 
throughout Joyous Festival of 
Life Week in the New Earth, 
Regents 14. Ten groups with a 
variety of interests have been 
planned for the spring. 

The Gospel of Matthew group, 
headed by Reg Akerson and 
Peggy Schultz, is involved in a 
continuing study of the gospel 
begun last semester, with an 
emphasis on its contemporary 

Pastor Gerry Swanson is 
heading a group concerned with 
Dietrich Bonhoffer's Life 
Together. Discussions on the 
book will follow through from last 
semester's Contemporary 
Christian Conversations. 

President Mark Mathews and 
Nelene Hiepler are involved in a 
Discovery group to discuss both 
issues on campus and the 
members' own personal lives at 

Gerry and Jan Swanson are 
organizing a special group for 
couples. Interested persons 
should contact the Swanson's 
directly at the New Earth. 

A Geriatrics group will con- 
tinue their work from last 
semester visiting shut-ins and 
forming friendships with 
forgotten people. New members 
are welcomed. 

Another group to continue from 
last semester, the Autistic 
Children group will be working at 
Camarillo State Hospital, helping 
children to form friendships. 

This semester, the Poverty 
Koinonia group will be visiting 
prisons and Indian reservations, 
as well as trying to help fight 
poverty in the Conejo Valley. 

Members of the Hotline group 
will be trained as Hotline 
listeners, and then given actual 

experience on the Hotline. They 
will meet to discuss their ex- 

Another group will be going to 
Camp Kilpatrick, a detention 
camp for boys ages 13 to 18 to 
tutor and establish friendships. 

The Sierra Backpacking Group 
with a Study of James will be lead 
by Barb Bornemann and a Sierra 
Club leader. They will attempt to 
discover nature through the book 
of James. 

Mae West Returns to CLC in 
Saturday Miracle Movie 

Mae West returns to CLC on 
February 16, 1974. This time she 
appears in She Done Him Wrong, 
another of her film classics. The 
film will be presented in the Little 
Theatre at 1:30 p.m. 

She Done Him Wrong was 
made in 1933 and co-stard Cary 
Grant (again), Gilbert Roland, 
and Louise Beavers. The film is 
the screen adaptation of her 
famous stage hit, Diamond Lil. 

Ms. West wrote all of her 
screenplays and she spoke of the 
difficult times she encountered 
with this film in her appearance 
here. The studio was concerned 
about the censors' reaction to the 

ribald dialogue and wanted Ms. 
West to clean it up. She refused 
and the film was made as she 
originally had written it. 

In the film Mae is the owner of 
a rowdy Bowery saloon. Could 
this symbolize Mountclef Dorm? 
If you have never seen a Mae 
West film, see this one and find 
out what all the shouting was 
about last October. 

Playing with the film are some 
classic shorts featuring Betty 
Boop, The Sex Life of a Polyp, 
and one of the most hilarious 
awards ceremonies you'll ever 

Remember the motto — " If it's 
good, it's a MIRACLE!"

William Friedkin 

ALC President Emeritus to Teach Seminar 

The President Emeritus of the 
American Lutheran Church, Dr. 
Fredrik A. Schiotz, will be the 
Distinguished Professor in 
Residence at CLC during the 
spring semester. 

Schiotz will teach a seminar 
course on "The Ecumenical 
Movement" and will also be 
available to students and pastors 
for consultation according to Dr. 
Wallace Asper, Chairman of the 
Religion Department. 

"First ALC president 

Schiotz was selected as the first 
president of the two and a half 
million member American 
Lutheran Church in 1960 for a six 
year term. He was re-elected for 
a second term in 1966 and retired 
in December of 1970. 

Instrumental in the formation 
of the Lutheran World Federation 
at Lund, Sweden, in 1947, he was 
elected president of that group in 
1963 at Helsinki, Finland. He 
filled that post until the 1970 
assembly in Evain-les-Bains, 

He continues as a member of 
the LWF executive committee 
and in addition, is a member of 
the executive committee of the 
Lutheran Council in the United 
States of America and is a 
member of the Central Com- 
mittee of the World Council of 

"St. Olaf Alumni" 

A native of Chicago, Schiotz 
graduated from St. Olaf College, 
Northfield, Minnesota in 1924 and 
Luther Seminary in 1930 with a 
bachelor of divinity degree 
followed by a two-year pastorate 
at Zion Church, Duluth, Min- 
nesota. During this period he 
completed work for a master of 
sacred theology degree, awarded 
by Luther Seminary in 1932. 

From 1932-38, he was pastor of 
Trinity Church, Moorhead, 
Minnesota, with one year of that 
period (1935-36) spent in a tour of 
mission fields in Japan, China, 
India, South Africa, and 

In 1938, he became executive 

director of the Student Service 
Commission of the former 
American Lutheran Conference, 
a position he filled for seven 
years. When that work was 
transferred to the National 
Lutheran Council in 1945, Schiotz 
became pastor of Trinity 
Lutheran Church, Brooklyn, N.Y. 
"Active in merger" 

In 1954, he was elected 
president of the Evangelical 
Lutheran Church succeeding Dr. 
J.A. Aasgaard and subsequently 
worked actively for merger 
negotiations which led to the 
formation of The American 
Lutheran Church. 

He is the recipient of numerous 
honorary degrees from Lutheran 
schools and colleges as well as 
from the University of Erlangen, 

He is married to the former 
Dagny Aasen of Minneapolis and 
he and his wife are the parents of 
a daughterT Lois, (married to the 
Rev. Paul Eid) and two sons, 
Nathan and Paul. 

The French Connection will be 
shown in the CLC Auditorium at 
8:15 p.m. on Sunday, February 

The true story of drug traffic in 
New York City, it stars Gene 
Hackman as Popeye, the 
policeman who busted the French 
Connection. It is based on the real 
story of Eddie Egan, a New York 
detective whose questionable 
tactics got him into serious 
trouble with his superiors. 

Directed by William Friedkin, 
it won several Academy Awards, 
including Best Picture, Best 
Actor (Hackman), and Best 
Director. It contains one of the 
most exciting chase scenes ever 

Admission is $.50 for CLC 

The Concert-Lecture Com- 
mission felt that it was necessary 
to provide the best films it could 
for the students. To achieve this 
goal, it has become necessary to 
charge a small amount to offset 
the cost of the films. Concert- 
Lecture has arranged for some of 
the best and most popular films 
of the past several years to be 

Midnight Cowboy stars Dustin 
Hoffman and Jon Voight and won 
the Academy Award for Best 
Picture in 1969. Cabaret, starring 
Liza Minnelli, nearly walked 
away with everything in 1938. 

Alfred Hitchcock, famed 
director of horror films, will 
speak about his fourty years in 
the motion picture business 
before the showing of his film 

CLC Landmark Falls 
Victim to Energy Crisis 

The giant CLC letters atop 
Mount Clef that have burned 
brightly from the light of 225 
bulbs for more than a decade 
have been extinguished. 

A familiar landmark to city 
residents and airline pilots 
heading into Los Angeles In- 
ternational Airport, the decision 
to turn off the lights is a direct 
result of the energy crisis. 

The decision was a gesture on 
the part of the college to 
cooperate with the growing 
power shortages, Dr. Mark A. 
Mathews revealed. 

The lights were first installed 
In the early years of the college 
by Jim Smith, maintenance 
engineer, who also conceived the 
idea of placing the huge white 
letters on the hill above the 

college. Smith has long since left 
the employ of the college and 
resides in Lake Tahoe, but his 
contribution has left its mark. 

The bulbs, which are seven and 
a half watts apiece, are located 
at two and a half foot intervals 
according to Eldon Hagen of the 
Building and Grounds Depart- 
ment. The reflection of the lights 
on the whitewashed stones which 
form the huge letters make the 
CLC sign visible for miles at 

So far, there have been only a 
few curious calls from local 
residents concerning the 
blackout, but for many airline 
pilots who live in the Conejo, the 
missing landmark which spelled 
'home' will take getting used to. 

Director to Speak on 
The Exorcist 

William Friedkin, director of 
the Exorcist, will be appearing in 
the CLC Auditorium on Wed- 
nesday, February 20. He will be 
speaking on the making of the 
Exorcist. At this time, it appears 
that he will be showing film clips 
from the movie to illustrate his 

Friedkin has directed some 
very well known films, including 
the Night They Raided Minskys, 
the Boys in the Band, and the 
French Connection. He received 
an Academy Award for Best 
Director for the French Con- 
nection and it appears that he will 
again be nominated for his 
direction of the Exorcist. 

The Concert-Lecture Com- 
mission has been in contact with 
Friedkin concerning the 
possibility of showing the com- 
plete fdm before his scheduled 
lecture. It was learned that to 
show the film on campus, it would 
be necessary for the film to be 
available in a 16 millimeter print. 

Friedkin did not know if the 
studio had such a print available 
and he wasn't able to say he knew 
if the studio would be willing to 

allow a college to show the film so 
soon after its commercial 

Friedkin did say he would be 
willing to see what he could do 
about it. The commission is 
doubtful at present that the studio 
would be willing to release the 
film at this time due to its 
commercial popularity. 

Friedkin will discuss the 
making of the film and his in- 
novative ideas in achieving the 
special effects needed to show 
demonic possession. He had a 
very difficult time making the 
film. Several of the crew 
members were killed in a freak 
accident on the set, one of the 
actors died after completing his 
role, and several scenes were 
ruined by an unexplainable 
double exposure. This double 
exposure was left in one scene in 
the completed film. 

Prior to his appearance on 
campus, the French Connection 
will be shown in the Auditorium 
on Sunday, February 17. 

Admission to the lecture is free 
with a CLC I.D. card. 

O.F.U.'s to Meet on Thursdays 

O.F.U.'s (Objective Facts for 
You) will be a regular presen- 
tation of the Counseling Service 
this semester, and will be 
meeting every Thursday from 
11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The 11:00 
program will be repeated at 12:00 
and 1:00. 

Topics under consideration on 
the campus will be discussed by 
informed persons from the 
various student services, such as 
the Health Service and the 
Placement Center. 

On February 14, the subject 
will be "Abortion," and the topic 
will be drug usage On February 
21. Subsequent presentations will 
consider V.D., contraceptives, 
and natural childbirth, all in 
coordination with the Health 

Later in the semester 
workshops in resume writing and 
job search will be presented. 

Watch for further information 
concerning future topics.

For All 

"And for all this, nature is never 

spent; There lives the dearest 

freshness deep down things..." 

-G.M. Hopkins 

These lines come from a poem 
by Gerard Manley Hopkins which 
is titled "God's Grandeur." It is a 
meditation on the subtle 
brilliance of God's grandeur 
which enlivens our world. 

A question is posed to this af- 
firmation. Why are men so in- 
sensitive? Why do we not see, 
feel, respond? 

Answered with our history 
compacted into terse images, 
described in the adjectives 
"seared," "smeared," 
"bleared." Speaking of our 
"toil." "Soil." "Trade." "Being 

Again affirming . . "and for 
this . . . there lives." There is one 
who warms this "bent world" to 
new life. 

I want to develop this column 
into a probing of "all this" and a 
sharing of "deep down things." 
The wonder. The dreads. The

No nation at any time on the face of this planet ever experienced 
the affluence of twentieth century America. The American public is 
obsessed with luxury and status. Its favorite indulgence is passing 
the blame. 

Can we seriously blame Detroit for those eight mile per gallon 
abominations if we, the buying public, are willing to purchase, 
because of status, those monstrosities? 

Now, we are in the midst of an 'energy crisis.' Supposedly, no one 
knows how we got here. It caught us by surprise. Besides, it's so 
easy to denounce the Arab states for using economics as a political 

We can't blame good ol' Standard Oil, or Shell Oil, or Texaco, or 
Union Oil. They can forecast consumption and production rates ten 
years in advance, but how could they know that the surplus of crude 
oil was dwindling? It's not their fault. 

The labor monopoly keeps striking and demanding higher wages. 
At the same time, it has washed its hands of inflation. How can it be 
their fault? The government is to blame. Of course! It's only 
natural to blame the government. Let's blame the United Farm 
Workers and Ceasar Chavez for the rise in food costs too. 

In our quest for a welfare state, we have created giant 
bureaucracies that overlap and thrive on inefficiency and waste. 
Let us become a society of specialists in order to create jobs. "Sir, 
do not ask me that question, I am not permitted to function beyond 
this window. Please go to window 147W3. The man there will refer 
you to the window that is authorized to tell you where the men's 
room is located." 

Some of you may have read or heard about the woman in New 
York City who wished to test the competence of the welfare bureau 
in that city. She succeeded in acquiring welfare money by passing 
her poodle off as a person. She let the newspapers know about it and 
now she is being sued by the embarrassed city for fraud. 

Faded, worn, torn blue jeans carry more status and are more 
expensive than new ones. Someday, old jeans may replace 
diamonds as status symbols and sources for appreciating value for 
investment purposes. 

Is insanity the price of affluence?

Rumors have abounded on 
campus this past semester and 
interim. Hopefully, what I have 
to say will lay some of these 
rumors to rest. 

Last November, it was 
rumored that Barry Ybarra 
didn't want to return to CLC for 
the spring semester. This rumor 
is true in part. It looks at this 
point, that I will not be able to 
return for the spring semester. 

It is not because I don't want to. 
At this time, it looks as if I may 
have to drop out due to financial 

I have projects for the spring 
that I really wanted to work on. A 
few of these projects included the 
annual faculty-student talent 
show, Yam Yad entertainment, 
directing Midsummer Night's 
Dream and bringing a group of 
deaf students to the college for 
the Robert Shields Mime Per- 
formance. Hopefully, this last 
can still come about without my 

I would like to cover a few 
areas that I feel need to be 
brought to the Senate's attention. 
These areas include student self- 
determination, students rights 
and apathy of student leaders. 

"Student Rights Threatened" 

We, as officers, must be always 
aware of any encroachment upon 
the students right to self- 
determination. This student self- 
determination has been seriously 
threatened this past year. Some 
members of the administration 
seem to feel that the students are 
to be presumed wrong until 
proven right. This attitude seems 
to be most prevalent among the 
newer members of the ad- 
ministrative team. 

It hasn't been very noticeable 
yet. It's been little things. Like 
improving student morals by 
removing the cigarette 
machines. Or rationing the food 

These changes came about 
without any regard to student 
needs and without any student 
government input as to the effect 
upon the students. It seems as if 
the administration is saying that 
students are not intelligent 
enough to decide for themselves 
that smoking is dangerous or that 
having more than two glasses of 
milk will deprive other students 
of milk due to the financial 

"Student Leaders Apathetic" 

But the horrifying aspect of this 
is not the administration's lack of 
regard for the student's right of 
self-determination. It is the lack 
of initiative that student leaders 
show to these minor en- 
croachments. We allow the ad- 
ministration to do what ever they 
please because we feel that it is 
no use to fight the administration. 

If we, as student leaders, allow 
these minor encroachments to 
continue, then the administration 
will try some major en- 
croachments with the satisfac- 
tion of knowing that the student 
body government will sit back 
and say nothing. 

Self-determination is a basic 
human right. It is also a student 
right. Student rights must be 
carefully guarded. They are new 
and fragile. But we do have the 
law on our side. 

Recently a rumor floated 
around campus that the ad- 
ministration was considering 
whether or not to allow a speaker 
on campus. This speaker had 
been chosen by the Concert- 
Lecture Commission and a 
contract had been signed. 

Students had chosen this 
speaker and the administration 
chose to question this choice. This 
was a serious threat to student 

"Courts Support Students" 

If the administration had 
elected to ban this speaker, we 
were prepared to take this issue 
to court. We had the law on our 
side. In previous court cases 
involving campus speaker bans, 
the court has determined that 
these speaker bans were un- 
constitutional. Fortunately, this 
was not necessary. However, the 
threat did exist and was very 
real. The administration will 
allow the speaker on campus but 
they have put a restriction on the 
type of publicity we use and 
where we place the publicity. 

This, I believe, is also a threat 
to the very basic student right of 
self-determination. When dollars 
become more important than 
education then this college will 
cease to be a place of higher 
education. Instead it will become 
an institution of higher finances. 

When the administration elects 
to govern the students in their 

choices, then the student 
government will cease to exist. 
Student government and student 
right will become a whim of the 

How has this come about? 
Partly, it is due to the ad- 
ministration's covert actions, but 
primarily it is due to apathetic 
leadership upon the part of 
student leaders. 

We can sit here and complain of 

student apathy but when the 

student leaders are themselves 

apathetic, what can we expect? 

"Officers Need to Care" 

Each senator and executive 
officer of this student body has 
got to care. To care about what 
happens is important, but then 
we must act. Our actions must be 
strong and forceful. We can no 
longer depend upon three people 
to get things done. We must get 
out and do it ourselves. 

If you care and act, then the 
students will begin to care and 
act. If you start to show respect 
for the office you hold then the 
students will begin to respect 
student government. 

But it also works the other way. 
If the student leaders are 
apathetic, then the students will 
be apathetic. We must work 
together. We must encourage 
others to run for office and if we 
cant find the people to run, then 
we ourselves must continue to 
stay in office. 

Elections will be coming up 
soon and I know that some of you 
want to get out because you're 
tired or bored. I ask you to be 
sure that someone can take your 

place. If you can't find some one, 
then I urge you to continue. 

If you get involved, if you 
muster up the energy to achieve 
something worthwhile from 
student government, then I can 
guarantee that you won't be 
bored. You may still be tired, but 
it will be a different type of 
fatigue, a fatigue that you will be 
proud of, and one that the 
students of this college will 
respect you for. 

"Present Threat" 

Finally, I would like to warn 
you of a threat to student self- 
determination that is, in my 
opinion, a clear and present 
danger. It involves the Concert- 
Lecture Commission. 

The administration is presently 
involved in restructuring the 
Concert-Lecture program. It is 
my understanding that the 
college administration wants to 
make the Concert-Lecture post 
an advisory position. 

This would literally destroy the 
effectiveness of the com- 
missioner in determining what 
speakers, performers and acts 
are brought to the campus. The 
strength of the Concert- Lecture 
Commission lies in its ability to 
choose those speakers that it 
feels would appeal to students. 

If the Concert-Lecture Com- 
missioner becomes just an ad- 
visor, the person elected by the 
students to run this office will 
become a waterboy for the ad- 
ministrative team. If the ad- 
ministration is allowed to destroy 
the Concert -Lecture Commission 
then you will set a precedent that 
threatens each and every student 
body office.

"Happy as the Grass Was Green 



It is unusual for me to review a 
movie in this column, but 
GREEN is an unusual movie. 

Filmed entirely in Lancaster 
County, Pennsylvania, the movie 
is the story of an angry young 
radical who comes to the Men- 
nonite community to buy a friend 
killed by the police. 

He encounters the hostility of 
these plain people toward his long 
hair and radical views, but he 
also encounters their inner 
peace, and after undergoing a 
conversion experience, he 
decides to stay on with the family 
of his dead friend. 

"A Love Story" 

This is a love story — a 
romance between a man and a 
community growing in un- 
derstand for each other and 
eventually learning the joys and 
sorrows of necessary parting. 

GREEN stars Geraldine Page as 
Anna, the mother of the dead boy. 

who, in spite of her sorrow, tries 
to comprehend the reasons 
behind his death. Pat Hingle 
plays Eli, a man of God 
struggling with the prejudices of 
his own Mennonite people. 

Graham Beckel is Eric Mills, 
an angry young man seeking 
peace in a world of injustice, and 
Rachel Thomas, a local Men- 
nonite girl making her film 
debut, is Hazel, fascinated with 
the stranger yet bound by her 
own strict heritage. 

The supporting roles in the film 
are performed by actual Lan- 
caster County residents, under 
the direction of Charles Davis. 
"Oscar Nomination 

Ms. Page, who has been 
nominated for an Oscar for her 
WAS GREEN, gave a beautifully 
understated performance in her 
portrayal of Anna Witmer. 
Hesitant, fearful of what the new 
ways of the world may hold, 
totally at home with the simple, 
comfortable way of life, she is the 
perfect portrait of the Mennonite 
woman confronted with the 

mysterious workings of God's 

Rachel Thomas gives a shining 
performance as the elusive 
Hazel, a reflection-in-a-pond 
sort of girl, enticing, but too deep 
to be understood. And a very, 
very beautiful girl to top it all. 
"Saved From Triteness" 

Graham Beckel gives a 
stunning performance, por- 
traying a character that could 
have easily been trite. He saves it 
from that though, and gives it 
still more— the full dimen- 
sionality of a very real person. 

Pat Hingle, whose face will be 
familiar even 'if his name is not, 
teaches Eric resignation while 
learning from him deter- 
mination. The simple farmer- 
preacher knows his God per- 
sonally, on a first name basis. 

GREEN is the kind of movie that 
gives you a warm feeling all the 
way through. The perfect blend of 
joy, sorrow, anger, and love, 
skillfully spiced with the perfect 
touch of humor, this movie is 
truly one of a kind. 

Not only does this threaten 
student government but it 
threatens student rights. No 
longer will students be able to 
choose speakers. The ad- 
ministration will decide who you 
are allowed to hear. 

"It Could Happen Here" 

The Brig ham Young University 
student body recently was told by 
its administration that the 
student choice of Three Dog 
Night was unacceptable for a 
dance. It could happen here. It 
will happen here, if the Concert- 
Lecture Commission is destroyed 
by administration interference. 
If you don't act as a student body 
government to stop this threat 
you will be giving approval to this 
takeover. You will, in effect, 
hand over student self- 
determination to the ad- 

The administration can give 
you good reasons for why they 
want to handle Concert-Lecture. 
I, myself, believe that changes 
a r e needed on the Concert- 
Lecture structure, but I cannot 
allow the administration to 
dictate to the students. 

"Separate But Equal" 

The administration will tell you 
that the advisory position they 
are advocating will be one that is 
separate but equal. There is no 
such animal as separate but 
equal. The blacks found that 
separate but equal facilities were 
anything but. The American 
Indian can tell you that separate 
but equal education doesn't exist 
anywhere in the Bureau of Indian 
Affairs school system. 

The Concert-Lecture Com- 
mission cannot exist under what 
will be called a separate but 
equal advisory position. The 
administration will tell you that 
better communication is needed 
in the Concert-Lecture program 
between administration and 
students. That sounds good. But if 
the administration is so con- 
cerned with communication, then 
why wasn't the Concert-Lecture 
Commission advised of and in- 
vited to the restructuring 
meetings that have been held? 

I was informed of these 
meetings by President Mathews 
and asked to make recom- 
mendations to Dean Kragthorpe. 
I made those recommendations 
but I will not be allowed to defend 
them at the meetings. This isn't 
communication. This is 

It is extremely hard for me to 
give up the Concert-Lecture 
office. I enjoy working in student 
government and I enjoyed 
handling Concert-Lecure this 

The success we have had has 
been shared with the entire 
student body. The few failures 
this year are shared only by me. I 
don't like resigning but it is 

I have asked Dan Ramsey to 
appoint June DreudTng to replace 
me. I hope you will find her ac- 
ceptable. She has worked on my 
commission this past year and I 
consider her an important asset 
to the Concert -Lecture program.

New Camp 

Hazel Switch 

As most people know, in the 
past ten years CLC has gone 
through many plans for a new 
campus, from a spralling campus 
on Mt. Clef overlooking the 
Conejo to a large shopping mall 
where the Mt. Clef Dorm now 

Finally, through dilligent 
planning and many hours of hard 
work by committees and the 
board, it looks like they finally 
have a feasable plan. 

The first step is going to be the 
construction of a Cultural Arts 
Center and Physical Education 
Center on the north side of Olson 
Rd. The buildings will be laid out 
with under and above ground 
parking for the millions of peppfe 
that will come to events around 
the year. 

The Cultural Arts Center will 
be laid out similar to the Music 
Center in LA. only larger. The 
massive structure will contain 
three large auditoriums styled 
after the Dorothy Chandler 
peviUion, one large amphitheater 
resembling the Mark Taper 
Forum, one massive convention 
center styled in duplicate to the 
Anaheim convention center and 
two small theaters with 400 
capacity seating in each. The 
three auditoriums and the am- 
phitheater will seat from 2500 up. 
The convention arena will hold 
15,000. Also included will be 
massive display centers with 
maximum security systems, as 
of yet unchallenged for the 
worlds largest art collections. 

Physical Education Center will 
be located directly adjacent to 
the Cultural Arts Center, with 
indoor tracks, gymnasium, 
swimming pools, handball 
courts, locker rooms, and 
numerous other facilities. The 
football stadium, equipped to 
hold 50,000 people, is directly 
North and adjoining this com- 

All of this massive cluster will 
be located on the North side of 
Olson Rd. and West of Mt. Clef 
Blvd. The cost of these structures 
is estimated at 500 million 

On the South side of Olson Rd. 
we will have large combined 
Math and Science buildings with 
separate but adjoining buildings 
for Physics-Chemistry, 
Radiology, Nuclear Combustion, 

News Briefs 

Rod McKuen, best-loved American poet, 
made a rare personal appearance at CLC last 
month in the Poetry Reading at The Barn 
Series. Mr. McKuen read from his latest 
works. The audience especially loved his 
lovely "How do I love thee? One, two, three, 
four ..." 

Uniformed police had to restrain the 
audience who moved toward the door . . . 
lights burned out . . . popcorn filled the air . . . 

"Out, damned spot" shrieked Rod to the 
dog who was gnawing at his shinbone 
"Out, I say . . ." but the dog continued his 
leisurly gnawing. By this time the crowd 
began to surge toward the stage clawing at 
Rod, ripping his shirt, his chinos, his 
maidenform nickers, leaving him in his birth- 
day suit with his enormous birthmark. The 
police moved in and charged him with 
streaking on a Christian campus. Others 
sought high and low for wood others dug a 
hole . . . some fetched kindling . . others 

nails . . . 

"It is a far, far better thing I do than I have 
ever done . . ." bellowed Rod, covering 
himself with a music stand . . . 

"When in the lives of men . . ." "All hell 
broke loose ..." 

But his words fell on deaf ears. The crowd 
was ugly. And from far-off came the sounds of 
thunder as chairs were broken . . . windows 
smashed ... the people running amuck from 
the joy of his language ... his meaningful 
symbols . . . his anapaests . . . 

"What iambics!' borne shrieked 
his metaphors . . ." 

"Whee. lookv at his dactyl!!" 

And another Poetry Reading at The Barn 
ended amidst total confusion and elation . 
one Dean was seen totaling up the per-student 
cost of Rod ; another was seen silently reading 
from the statutes on obscenity Rod 

himself grabbed what was left of his dignity 
and ran madly through all and sundry . . . 
barely missing knocking over sundry) and 
fled through the hills . . 

The crowd dispersed ... the evening was 
over . . . 

Gay Pastor Brings Sexual Understanding 

Phyllis Fail Truly 

And the stadium leaped to their 
feet with cheers and exaltation as 
Norman Perry, minister of the 
Hollywood Gay Libbers Church, 
gave a presentation in the 
Kingsman Stadium, March 23. It 
was the largest turnout of CLC 
students and Thousand Oaks 
residents since Peanuts and 
Charlie Brown made their 
spectacular appearance here 
over three years ago! 
The reason for everyone's 
enthusiastic response to Rev. 
Perry was that, as he spoke, a 
road of communication seemed 
to open up between his life style 
and our own accepted morals. 
There was no converting on 
either side, only a surge of un- 
derstanding and agapaic love. At 
the close of his short presen- 
tation, the crowd stood up and 
applauded, whistled, hollered, 
etc. for a whole hour! We left 
knowing our world had expanded 
a few feet — now encompassing 
some unloved souls who had been 
lonely too long.

to Film 


Don Haskell recently disclosed 
that the new T.V. studio on 
campus has been contracted to 
film a new series for next year 
starring Jacques Cousteau and 
Beatrice Arthur. The American 
Broadcasting Company (ABC) 
has bought the T.V. rights to the 
book Candide with the screenplay 
written by J.T.Ledbetter of our 
CLC English Department. 
WillianFriedkin, thedirctor, said 
he especially wanted to do the 
filming at CLC because of the 
beautiful city in which the 
campus was located, and because 
he heard that Don Haskell and his 
team of hard working filmers 
really did a great job. "After all, 
if you can put out a good 
educational show, you can do 
anything. " 

Beatrice and Jacques 
especially wanted to work 
together. "I have always looked 
forward to meeting Jacques, but 
working with him will be even 
better." said Beatrice. When 
asked how he felt about working 
with Ms. Arthur, Jacques said, " 
thought she made a good 
monarch, now I'll see how good 
an ugly woman she makes." 

The actual filming will start 
June 20, but rehearsals have 
already started. 

Haskell will recreate the rapids 
scene in the Kingsmen Park 
river. Of course it will have to be 
after a very strong rain. The ship 
scenes will take place on Lake 
Lindero. The garden will be the 
land beyond the gym and K 
building. All other scenes will be 
shot in the studio itself.

Kingsmen Echo Interview 

Betty Crocker 

April 1, 1974 

Kingsmen Echo Interview: Betty 

Clark Kent 

A candid conversation with the with tood 

activist cook-mistress con- association 

cerning her personal relationship Lopez. 

and her long-time 
with our own Lil 


Late last year, Betty Crocker 
called reporters to the Los 
Angeles Press Club and told them 
she was suing the President. 
During the press conference she 
held a bulging FBI file, a gift 
from Republican party hatchet- 
man and bon vivant, Ewell 
Gibbons, bulging with her per- 
sonal finances recipes for Date- 
Nut Bars, Corn Mush and Goose- 
berry pie that she claimed was 
gathered illegally. (The FBI 
later disclaimed any illegal 
action, arguing that the disputed 
information was collected from 
Peg Braken's "I Hate To Cook- 
Book") Nobody attending the 
press conference was very 
surprised at the announcement, 
an announcement indicative of 
the great change in the country 
and of course in Betty herself. 
Born in the back of a Chicago 
beanery, the illegitemate child of 
millionaire pasta heiress, Olivia 
"Noodles" Romanoff and the late 
Rocco "Eggs" Benedict, Chicago 
black market racketeer, Betty 
felt an immediate calling for 
work among foodstuffs. Ms. 
Crocker attributes this early 
attraction to food to the fact that 
she was hungry. 

On her twenty-second birthday, 
Betty met and married Sir 
Rodney Crocker, pottery 
magnate. He was all the in- 
spiration she needed and she 
immediately published her first 
book; "Betty Cookers Crock 
Book." It failed miserably. But. 
Sir Rodney "Egged" her on and 
finally, with publication of her 
second book, "Betty Crocker's 
Cook book", her fame and for- 
tune were assured. It was then 
that she met Lil Lopez. "I was 
looking for a place to test my 
theories and recipes back in the 
summer of 1959. You know, sort 
of a culinary proving ground." 
commented Ms. Crocker. "I 
finally decided on the tiny burgh 
of Thousand Oaks and the 
campus of CLC." 

After their first meeting back 
in 1959, Lil and Betty have been 
an inseparable team. "I always 
read a few lines from her book 
before going to bed at night!" 
remarked Ms. Lopez. "She's 
been such an inspiration to me! I 
even have an autographed set of 

But what of real Betty 
Crocker? The Betty Crocker 
behind all the Gold Medal flour 
and the one cup whole milk? 
Perhaps this interview can give 
you a better understanding of 
Bettv's relationship with food in 
hopes of stemming the ever- 
increasing tiae or aieieib. 

Echo: Well Ms. Crocker, with 
the big Bake- off in Trenton N.J. 
just two weeks off, who do you, as 
the champion of the last fourteen 
bake-offs held in that city, feel 
will really be the competition for 
you as you go for an un- 
precedented fifteenth straight 
bake-off victory? 
..Crocker: Betty! Call me Betty! 

Echo: O.K. Betty! How do you 
feel about that? 

Crocker: About what? 

Echo: About the Bakeoff. 

Crocker: Would you repeat the 
question please. 

Echo: Sure. Who do you feel 
will be the competition in the big 
one next week in Trenton. The 
Twentieth Annual Trenton 
Bakeoff and Sewing competition? 

Crocker: Well Howard, as you 
know, I've held the championship 
for the last fourteen years run- 
ning not to mention a few 
European competitions were I 
compared Blue Bonnet 
Margarine to the higher priced 
spread. And you know what? 
Them Eye-talians and Frenchies 
couldn't tell the difference! I 
think tnat's significant, don't you 

Echo: Yes, of course but what 
about the upcoming bake-off next 

Crocker: What bake-off is that, 

Echo: The big one! In Trenton 
N.J. Next week! 

Crocker: Oh yes, that one. 

Echo: Well? 
Crocker: Well what? 
Echo: Ahem! O.K. I can see 
it's time to move on to something 

Crocker: I know! Let's talk 
about the big bake-off in Trenton 
next week! 

Echo: That's a great idea! Why 
don't you tell us about it? 

Crocker: Tell you about what, 

Echo: Oh, never mind! Why 
don't you tell us about how you 
and Lil Lopez got to be such in- 
separable friends. I'm sure our

Echo: O.K. Shoot! 
Crocker: Who's Lil Lopez? 
Ecbo: Surely you haven't 
forgotten Lil Lopez? She's your 
greatest fan! She's been your 
friend for years. She's held your 
recipe book for you at all the big 
bake-offs! Trenton, Albumen, 
Albama, Anthricite, Wyoming, 
Cloister, North Dakota, and of 
course the international com- 
petition at Halitose, Mississippi. 
Crocker: Oh! That Lil Lopez! I 
wondered why she was always 
hanging around! I thought she 
was the gardener's wife! 

Echo: No! She's not the gar- 
dener's wife! She's the head of 
the food services department at 
CLC and a darned good cook too! 
Crocker: Well, she should be if 
she hangs around me at all! I'm 
the greatest cook there ever was, 
you know! Have you ever seen

April Calendar 

The CLC faculty and administration, in deep concern over the 
strikingly small amount of re-applicants to the Lu for the Fall 
semester, have planned a few exciting events to help arouse the 
interest of CLC students'.' 

April l. (April Fools J)ay ), will host the first Faculty and Ad- 
ministration Streak. This Streak will be led by people in the 
Financial Aid office. They will begin in the gym with a donkey 
basketball game and at the final buzzer will streak through 
Kingsmen Park, and will all enter at the front entrance of the 
cafeteria, and then streak down to lunch. 

April 13, Gerry Swanson and his gangbusters will be gathering up

April 22. (which boasts a new moon) the college Deans, who have 
been share-cropping a Marijuana plantation during the Lu's off 
season (all the time) will be reaping their first harvest. Many 
extra-curricular activities have been planned, but the Deans wish 
to keep these plans quiet for the time being. 

Sometime toward the end of April the Science and English 
Departments will be pulling off a panty raid. They plan to do this by 
air. Alpha and Beta will be landing strips for 2 rented helicopters, 
and girls living in the McAfee Apartments should be especially

So fellow students, if you are undecided about returning to CLC in 
the Fall semester, stick around during April, and let the faculty and 
administration help you make your choice.

Lava Surfing: 

Chanda Lear 

Last Sunday I had the rare 
opportunity to chat with Peter P. 
Broadcloth, captain of the newly- 
formed UC Santa Barbara Lava 
surfing team. Mr. Broadcloth, 
sporting guaze bandages from 
between six plastic tubes 
carrying various fluids in and out 
of his body. It was crowded in the 
burn unit of the intensive care 
section at Goleta Valley General 
Hospital and Mr. Broadcloth kept 
lapsing in and out of conciousness 
so I had to w ork fas t. According 
to Mr. Broadcloth, Lava surfing 
is indeed sweeping the country! 
He attributes its popularity to 
the fact that it combines the skills 
and talents of regular ocean-type 
surfing, with the thrills and ex- 
citement of stowing away on a 
Kamakazi plane. Surfers are" 
judged by the same criteria as 

to Work : 
Athletes / 

One again it is that time of year 
when each student reviews his 
financial status. Charlie Brown in 
busy pulling figures from the 
Parents Confidential Statement, 
quickly informing you that your 
parents, (ever since the 
depression) are as financially 
sound as the Exxon Oil Corp., 
something which your parents 
have hidden rather well, ever 
since you can remember! It even 
comes as quite a surprise to 
them! You soon realize that 
you'll have to work this summer, 
one of the possibilities which has 
crossed your mind, but you 
refused to give it much thought. 

May this article offer an 
alternative to work. What? 
Become a CLC athlete-student. 
Many of you have heard this term 
referred to by the NCAA and 
NAIA as the student-athlete, 
trying to emphasize the proper 
role of the athlete as a student 
first. Using this reasoning I will 
continue to regard our con- 
tingency as the athlete-students 
of CLC. 

Some of the athletes of CLC do 
have a need for financial 
assistance, let alone the fact that 

their oceanic conterparts except 
that one wipe-out (or burn-out as 
they say in lava-land) will 
eliminate you From any com- 
petition until a scab forms. 
(Asbestos wet suts are presently 
being designed to help decrease 
recovery time.) 

Mr. Broadcloth offers this 
helpful hint to those who don't 
have a volcanoe or other lava 
source near-by: Try surfing 
through the atomic pile in the 
nuclear reactor at San Clemente! 
U. you ask nicely, government 
officials will usually be glad to 
get you a security clearance. 

At this point in the interview 
Peter P. Broadcloth, (or P.P. as 
his friends call him) lost con- 
ciousness for the last time. If you 
are interested in joining a lava 
surfing team or if you care to 
make a contribution to the U.S. 
Olympic Lava Surfing team just 
send your name, address and 
phone number to The Peter P. 
Broadcloth Memorial Lava 
Surfing Fund. You will be con- 
tacted by return mail. 

it might have to be accompanied 
by an education. Rumor once had 
it that grants (as they are 
precariously called) were offered 
to anything that was over 6 feet, 
210 pounds, ran a 4.9 forty, or 
under a 15 minute 3 mile?. The 
best prospect for this offer was a 
gorilla, which the San Diego Zoo 
was hoping to educate. However, 
this was not allowed as he might 
humiliate the rest of the fresh- 
men. An explanation for this was 
never sought. A profitable aspect 
for this offer was found as, even 
though they did not have the 
physical attributes of the gorilla 
or the grade point average, the 
new recruits allowed CLC to field 
a Varsity Basketball program 
this vear. 

It is time to return to the 
alternative to work, as was 
mentioned earlier in the article. 
The best suggestion is to take 
your high school films, (probably 
the one where they misprinted 
the program and had your 
number exchanged with the All- 
state halfback on your team) 
make an appointment with Coach 
Shoup, and profess to be the best 
athlete since George Plimpton. 
Even the worst possible answer 
you can get is "maybe," unless 
you're a girl, and then you won't 
even get an appointment. 

Palmer and 

Win Match 

Arnold Palmer and Jack 
Nicklaus, two previously untried 
Freshmen led the CLC Golf Team 
in its first win in over 200 matches 
last Sunday here. 

Playing the CLC Golf Course 
(par 58), Arnold and Jack both 
shot 80 to collect six points apiece 
over their opponents from La 
Verne, and register a 6-5 winning 
team score. 

Johny Miller, playing as No. 3 
for CLC highlighted his round 
with a hole-in-one on the par five 
third hole., but lost his match 
scoring 100 for the eighteen holes. 

Under the scoring system, six 
points are awarded per match 

with two points being awarded to 
the winner of each nine and of the 
match. Six golfers multiply by six 
points equals 36 possible points. 

Other golfers who competed 
and lost were Gary Player, on 
scholarship from South America, 
Gene Littler whose skill "has 
been doubtful", and Robert 
Jones, a southerner who keeps 
"ditching" class to play golf 
around the country. 

Golf Coach Robert Shoup, also 
the tiddleywinks coach, praised 
the team, "It was a fine team 
effort, and now that we've put it 
all together, I predict we'll win 
NCAA." The team record with 
two matches left to go is 1-20. 

He added, "For awhile, I was 
doubtful of Arn and Jack. They 
didn't seem too ambitious, nor 
did the others seem to have much 
skill in hitting the golf ball." 

The team has two easy mat- 
ches left after an ardous 
schedule. They play on the road 
against USC and the University 
of Houston. 

Most of the past opponents 
have gone on to great ac- 
complishments. For instance, 
Moorpark JC established a new 
team record of 800 strokes, and 
they did this even though a flu 
epidemic had decimated their 
team down to two. 

Greg Uthus flips over plan to initiate inter- 
collegiate swimming team into University of South- 
ern California's athletic program. The proposed 
instructor will be either Tom Harmon or the famed 
track star, Mark Spitz. 


Intramural Sports 

April has just begun, and as 
most students know, our school 
year here at CLC won't end until 
late in May. But how will the 
athletic-minded spend it when 
sports are almost over? 

I believe that intramural sports 
hold the answer, and so I enjoyed 
the football and basketball 
programs put on by Mark Hollis, 
and Don Hossler. 

However, more sports or ac- 
tivities are needed, and so I have 
some suggested sports. 

Lava Surfing — The rules for 
this are in another article, but 
just think of the fun of this! 

Kingsmen Hockey — Teams on 
roller skates would push Swedish 
meatballs from the CLC 
Cafeteria along the floors of the 
dorm wings with brooms. 

Mailroom Stuff — Large teams 
are needed, and the team 
members would be pushed into 
the mailroom. To make it more 
fun, members should not have 
showered for at least one week, 

and also have done rigorous 
calistenics every one of those 
days. Corpses will be disposed of 
in i,nter-campus mail. 

Frisbee Dish-Toss — The dish 
is lined with razor-sharp metal 
and heaped with food. First one to 
catch without droping food or 
losing a hand wins a free meat- 
loaf dinner. 

Spaghetti dueling — A fight to 
the death gripping the noodles 
with the lips. 

Watercooler Burp — You know 
how bubbles rise to the top? Well, 
the participant gets three bangs, 
and the number of bubbles 
counted would determine winner. 

Cactus Ball — This is an en- 
durance test, as it must be done 
in the raw aeorss the hills of the 
Conejo kicking with bare feet a 
ball of cactus. 

Balloon Water-Polo — This 
game is played on a carpeted 
area, and on the stomach. The 
player pretends he is swimming 
alone pushing wijh his arms (not 

hands) the balloon. He must try 
to maneuver the balloon so as to 
throw it with one hand into or 
through an open doorway for a 
score past a goaltender. 

Grapefruit Soccer — This is 
sort of doubtful, because it should 
be played in the Cafeteria, and 
since the cafeteria is the source 
for all sporting equipment, we 
wouldn't want to offend them, but 
. . . after all football is the new 
No. 1 sport! 

Suicide Roller Derby — Should 
be played on the parking lot 
asphalt. Members will be 
wearing roller skates and trying 
to lap another player from the 
other team. Sounds easy, except 
that grease will be added to the 
asphalt. Oh, and remember, this 
is another of those streaking 

As I said before, I feel this is a 
very intersting program, and I'm 
sure that CLC students will take 
it to heart . . . 

Did I mention Liver-toss?

Letters to the Editor 

Alpha and Beta Dorms Bugged 


Dear Editor, 

Being a resident of Alpha 
Dorm, I am naturally concerned 
with the privacy of Alpha, and the 
surrounding premices. I am 
writing this letter because the 
privacy of the girls living in 
Alpha and Beta is being seriously 

Using my super Sherlock in- 
stincts I have found enough 
evidence to prove beyond the 
shadow of a doubt that the above 
mentioned housing facilities are 
being bugged by male residents 

residing in Kramer Court. These 
young men, who are nothing but 
gossip hungry students, have 
placed bugging devices in ap- 
proximately ten rooms of each 

The equipment being used is 
very expensive and sophisticated 
equipment, and can be detected 
only by those with much ex- 
perience in tnis type of operation. 
Those unfamiliar to this situation 
may be involved, and not even be 

Hew Dorms 

Dear Editor: 

I have been toying with a little 
idea that I'm sure the CLC 
planning commision would want 
in on but before I present it to 
them I would like to see what the 
student response is. 

As a student at CLC, I have 
become aware of the increasing 
lack of dormitory space. Next 
year, when CLC enters the 
California State College system 
with a student population of well 
over 80,000, this shortage will be 
much more acute. My idea is as 
follows: Why not make use of the 
lovely and rustic Indian caves 
located on the north end of the 
campus? The Chumash Indian 
used them for many years and 
I'm sure we could make a deal 
with them if we can find any. The 
college could actually charge 
more for living in the caves 
because of the atmosphere and 
the great sense of tradition these 
wonderful caves would instill. I 
would appreciate a reply in the 
paper as they don't let me get any 
mail here yet oecause I always 
try to eat it. 

Yours truly, 

Sir Baryl Tuft 

Camarillo, Calif. 


Dear Editor, 

1 would like to protest the lack 
of widlife controls on the part of 
California Lutheran College. To 
be specific, Why are there so 
many birds on campus, and why 
do they drop their ... on me, and 
on my car? 

My problem is that a couple of 
weeks ago I was walking to my 
car after having given a lecture 
to a science class. As I left the 
classroom, a bird swooped down 
and left a momento in my eye. I 
continued walking through that 
park and was hit again and again 
by those BLEEP birds, and the 
topper came when I had to chase 
Seagulls of my car, and then have 
to wipe away one of the tones of 
color it had aquired. 

A couple of years ago, I in- 
stituted various programs for 
control of those BLEEEP 
aviators. My mass-genocide plan 
where I coax hundreds of birds 
into a cage and then send in 
starving cats was really popular. 

And, from time to time I have 
been recognized with special 
awards for my fine work. Why, 
just last week the National 
Poaching of Small Wildlife 
Association gave me a lifetime 

So why doesn't this school 
institute some programs? I would 
be only too happy to give counsel. 

In fact, I have a plan that will 
work. Coax birds into a collap- 
sable cage of barbed wire, and 
when the birds have entered, let 
them sit in there for a week, and 
collapse the sides very slowly. 
Sooon, they'll suffocate in their 
own .... 

I'll even send a few felines to 
rout the birds. And if this fails , 
there's always one last resort, 
and that is to line your car with 
issues of this newspaper. 
Charles Audobon. 

the least bit aware of it. The 
eavesdropping is being done with 
Heath Kit bugging equipment 
which, although very technical, 
can be assembled by reading the 
easy 1-2-3 step directions. 

These bugging devices found so 
far have been discovered in 
thermostats, air ducts, and wall 
sockets, but many other 
possibilities are suspected. 
These men are professionals 
and have one goal in mind. They 
are interested only in gossip and 
rumors, and will go to any ex- 
treme to find these things out. 

So, girls in Alpha and Beta, I 
recommend that if you are 
' holding an important gossip 
session, and you suspect you are" 
being bugged, to follow these 
three steps. First, turn the radio 
up loud, sit in a tight circle, and 
r urtner steps are being taken 
to uncover this operation and 
positive results are expected in 
the near future.

CLC Master Plan Nearly Completed 


In 1972, President Mark 
Matthews led the Regents of CLC 
on a tour of all the college 
facilities. This created what was 
known as the Educational 
Resources Committee. This 
committee was to look at what we 
had here at CLC, to see what 
could be improved on the cam- 
pus, and to decide if our 
enrollment should be increased 
or decreased. This committee 
was made up of students, and 
members of the faculty and 
administration. The decision was 
made that we needed additional 
classrooms, and Nygreen Hall 
was built. This is a very func- 
tional building and was built 
relatively inexpensively. 

The Educational Resources 
Committee was then re -named 
the Planning Committee. The 
same people were on the com- 
mittee and the Regents also 
became involved. Burton Thorpe, 
VP of the Union Oil Co. was the 
acting chairman of the Planning 

With the involvement of the 

new team, including Dean 

Buchanan who played a very key 

part, the Regents approved the 

hiring of a campus planner. This 
started the problem of selecting 
an architectual firm to produce 
an appropriate plan for the 
college. The final decision was to 
have a Mr. Harold Holding from 
Colorado Springs, Colorado. He 
produced the plans for Bethany 
College in the Mid-west. A con- 
tract was signed on December 1, 
1973, and Mr. Holding presented a 
report by February 19, 1974. It 
was approved by the Regents in 
concept, with a few changes 


Some things will be remaining 
the same. The communications 
building, annex, bank, and ad- 
ministration building will be 
basically the same as they are 
now. The housing facilities used 
now will be the same also. 

The present library will be 
expanded and wrapped around 
the annex and then be used for 
classrooms. The cafeteria will 
also be converted for academic 

An Educational Resources 
building will be erected which 
will be a library with all the 
necessary extras. A chapel will 
be built which will be seen off of 
Olsen Road. Memorial Drive will 
be cut off and at the end will be a 
new campus center which will 
include all recreational facilities 
and the food service. 

Kramer Court will be ex- 
panded, additional tennis courts 
will be built and a science center 
is also in future plans. An outdoor 
amphitheater will be built for the 
purpose of student rallies and 
outdoor teaching. 

Plans also include a Life-long 
learning center, the purpose 
being integration in all areas, the 
emphasis on integration of 
various ages. Hopefully, we will 
have people living on campus in 
low rise apartments, who will be 
students, teachers and friends to 
everyone on campus. 

Ray Bradbury on Love of Work 

Sara Lineberger 

On Thursday, March 14 CLC 
hosted Ray Bradbury in the gym 
as guest speaker. In the begin- 
ning of his speech, Bradbury 
gave illustrations of his work, 
both past and present. 

One of his present projects is to 
try and "revitalize" the 
Declaration of Independence by 
writing it over as a science fiction 
play with two computers battling 
with words, one for the colonies 
and one for the mother country, 
England. Bradbury said the 
function of this is to find "new 
ways of saying old things". 
"Love your work" 

Bradbury then said that his 
purpose for coming was to "teach 
you to be in love with your work ' ' . 
He said that he wanted to make 
everyone envy him, and ask 
themselves "why should he have 
all the fun?" He said that right 
now we are all "damnable bo res" 
sitting there and doing nothing. 
We should catch his enthusiasm 
and go out and have fun in our 

While he was growing up, he 
had to ignore the laughter from 
everyone in order to do what he 
wanted to do. He collected Buck 
Rogers comic books, and when he 
was 12 years old, he wrote his 
first science fiction story. Out of 
4,000 people in his high school he 
said he was the only one who 
cared about the future. All his life 
he felt very inferior and it wasn't 
until he was 30 years old when he 
realized how "fantastically 
bright" he was.

Writes for himself 
Bradbury said that he does not 
write for the publisher or for 
money, he writes for himself. 
When he gets an idea for a short 
story, it is a celebration to write 
it. "I love it and I must do it" he 

Many of his life's experiences 
are the ideas for his short stories. 
For instance his short story 
Foghorn was inspired by a walk 
on the beach with his wife. They 
were walking along the beach in 
Venice when the pier was being 

torn down. They came across the 
remains of a roller coaster track 
sprawled along the beach, and he 
asked himself where that 

monster came from. That night 
while sleeping, he woke up and 
heard the foghorn blowing. He 
then understood why the monster 
was on the beach.The monster 
had heard the foghorn blowing 
also and thought it was his lover. 
He came toward the beach to find 
it but never did. He died on the 
beach from a broken heart. 

On the north side of Olsen Road 
a Cultural Art Center will be 
built. This will include an ex- 
perimental theater, an art 
gallery and a concert lecture 
hall. All athletic facilities will 
also be on the north side of the 
campus. All equestrian trails of 
Ventura county meet on CLC 
ground, and for this reason the 
stables will be expanded. 
Students who own horses will be 
urged to bring their horses to 

As far as the cost is concerned 
President Matthews commented 

"it will be reasonable and 
manageable to the college. The 
plan for funding will be in final 
form in three to four months." 
President Matthews stressed 
that he wants to keep interested 
readers informed on the progress 
of the plan, and he gives the 
promise of the administration to 
share the final plan somewhere 
near the end of April. At this time 
viewing sessions will be held 
around campus for anyone in- 
terested in the Master Plan to see 
it and make their comments, 
positive or negative. 

CLC Choir and Symphony play 
at Music Center 

The 1974 CLC choir and sym- 
phonette tour ended Tuesday 
March 4 with its Grand Finale 
concert at the Dorothy Chandler 
Pavilion at the Music Center in 

This year was the fourth 
consecutive year of the annual 
appearance at the Pavilion. An 
essentially full house of CLC 
alumni and students, faculty, 
parents and sponsors lined the 
seats at the Center. Both choir 
and symphonette performed 
exceptional in solo, then com- 
bined their talents into one of the 
finest and most unique College 
performance techniques in the 
Sounds of CLC. The show moved 
brightly with expert direct- 
arrangements and newest 
compositions, Beguine for 

Outstanding performances 
were noted from all 85 people who 
participated. Solos by Jeany 
Bengston, Sue Simcox, Charissa 
Ruud, and Ray Hebel enlightened 
the audience with their voices 

while trumpeteers Mike Booth, 
Paul Edwards, Doug Kuse, and 
Dan Ramsey blended their 
brillance to echo throughout the 
Pavilion. The Conejo Canaries 
were as wierd as ever, and had 
the audience roaring with 
laughter even though they did 
sing well. 

Talking with the performers 
after the concert, they showed 
their thanks to a warm friendly 
and full audience. 

The evening was highlighted 
with the performance of Mr. 
Gordon Macrae who matched his 
talented singing with his wit, and 
good humor. 

Mr. Ramsey and Dr. Zim- 
merman were pleased with the 
results of the tour, and were 
proud of the members. Mr. 
Ramsey said "artistically, and 
educationally, the tour was very 

All who went to the concert 
were presented with a» very 
pleasant and well performed 

Live your dreams 
Every one of us has dreams, 
something in mind for the future. 
"I dreampt myself into becoming 
what I am, you have nothing 
until you become what you 
dream". This is one of Brad- 
bury's beliefs. He had a dream 
when he was young, and now he is 
able to live that dream. One must 
train oneself to be able to write 
well just like one must train one's 
body in order to win a gold medal 
at the Olympics. 

"Let it happen" 
But at the same time, one must 
love to do what he is doing, and 
sit back and let it happen, let the 
ideas flow. Stop thinking with the 
head and start thinking with the 
fingers. Either it happens or it 
doesn't, but never look back. 
"There is always something to be 
found, someday the truth will 
jump out and surprise you". 

When asked if any of his ideas 
had any religious content he said 
that he is first a genetic creature 
given life by God, and secondly a 

religious creature put on earth 
"to become me". 

A Holy mission 

He feels that space travel is a 
holy mission and not a political 
one; a mixing of flesh and stars. 
For 3 billion years man had been 
looking for a way to stay alive 
and by traveling in space man is 
trying to find immorality. 

Bradbury thinks that if all the 
imaginative people took over the 
world they could rebuild it and 
make it work. There would be no 
more gas shortages, because 
those people are not politicians 
but scientists. For instance Walt 
Disney had solved the problem a 
long time ago with the monorail. 

When asked how he felt about 
Chariots of the Gods he answered 
that he didn't know if it was true 
or not, but it was good because it 
could reopen the awe of the 
universe. He continued by saying 
that he thought that astrology 
was a bunch of horse manure and 
that people should cut it out and 
get to work.

Peace Symposium Friedkin: Guest Lecturer 

Terry Nipp 

On March 23, the Lutheran 
Peace Fellowship sponsored a 
Lutheran Peace Symposium at 
CLC. The purpose of the 
program was to get concerned 
Lutherans together to discuss 
and consider the causes of war 
and the means of pursueing 
peace. Also, to ask how in- 
dividuals, as Lutherans, come 
about reconciling the differing 
demands in their lifes of Church 
and State, war and peace. 

Participants were given the 
opportunity to listen to in- 
dividuals adress the 
pychological, economical and 
political causes of war and 
resources for peace. As well, 
there was a presentation titled 
"A Christian Theology of Peace 
in our Day". 

The program began with 
registration and coffee. Dr. Jerry 
Pedersen, of the Lutheran Peace 
Fellowship, opened up the 
proceedings with a worship 
service. The speaker was Dr. 
Gehard Bel gum, from the Center 
for Theological Studies. 

In the first section the par- 
ticipant chose one of the three 
possible disciplinary insights into 
war and peace. 

The "Pychological Causes of 
War and Resources for Peace" 
department was covered by Dr. 
Vernon Stremke, Pacific 
Lutheran Theological Seminary - 
Berkeley. Rev. Ron Kragthorpe, 
CLC, and Rev. Richard Lippert, 
Pastor, responded to the 

The "Economic Causes of War 
and Resource for Peace" section 
was presented by the Rev. Otto 
Bremer, Pastor at U.C.S.B. Rev. 
Charles Manske, President 

Christ College, and Dr. John 
Kuethe, CLC, reacted to the 

The section dealing with the 
"Political Causes and Resources 
for Peace" was offered by Dr. 
Ralph Moellering, LC-MS Special 
Ministries, and was responded to 
by Dr. Peter Ristuben, CLC. and 
Dr. Helmut Haeussler, CSU- 

In each of the different sections 
il was possible for the par- 
ticipants to ask questions and 
interact with the speakers and 
with each other. It is interesting 
to note that there was a wide 
diversity of personalities, per- 
spectives, and life styles present 
in these discussions, and through 
out the Symposium as well. 

The group then broke up for 
lunch and returned for the second 
round of presentations, the 
participant then attended 
another of the three possible 
lecture-discussions. This section 
was followed by a coffee break 
and the final presentation which 
was given by Mr. Charles P. 
Lutz, director Church in Com- 
munity, ALC, a discussion about 
"A Christian Theology of Peace 
in our day". Dr. Carl 
Segerhammer, PSW Synod; Dr. 
Wallace Asper, CLC; and the 
Rev. Gerald Swansen, CLC; 
plus-at special request-Dr. 
Scholtz, past president ALL', 
Scholar in Residence, CLC; 
spoke in response to the 
presentation which was given. 

The participants then broke up 
into small group workshops to 
discuss the final presentation and 
regrouped for a closing worship 
service led by Dr. Pedersen and 
Rev. Gerald Swansen. 

President Mathews 

One of the important reasons I am in higher education is that I 
enjoy college age students. The president's responsibilities take me 
away from the campus much too often. 

Starting on Wednesday, April 17 and each Wednesday thereafter 
I plan to have supper on campus with students and then to return to 
my office. The door will be open and I will be there from 6 to 8 p.m. 
There are no appointments necessary. Just come on over and let's 
come to know one another. 


William Friedkin, director of 
The Exorcist, was a guest 
speaker in the CLC Gym on 
Wednesday, February 20. 

After an introduction by June 
Drueding, Friedkin spoke about 
several of his films. He focused 
mainly upon The French Con- 
nection and The Exorcist, 
showing film clips from both 

Friedkin, an Academy Award 
winner and recent nominee, for 
The Exorcist, informed listeners 
that he is still busy with that 
picture. The sound track must be 
dubbed in German,* French and 
Italian for foreign release. He 
added facetiously that he is also 
working on a musical version of 
The Exorcist. 

The director confided, "I had 
no idea that the reaction (to the 
Exorcist) would be what it is." 

He reported that, during the 
making of the film, "in order to 
keep our sanity, we handled it 
with a great lightness." Friedkin 
said that some of the things 
depicted were so bizarre that the 
cast and crew were often 
prompted to exclaim, "Oh wow! 
If they believe this, they'll 
believe anything!" 

Friedkin began his creative 
career working in television, 
when he was sixteen-years-old. 
His first experience was in 
Chicago. He was employed as a 
mail clerk for a television studio 
and worked his way up to 
directng live tv. 

Friedkin admittedly worked 
for every television station in 
Chicago and was fired from them 

He left Chicago when he was 
asked to direct a commercial 
which he found to be in poor taste. 
The advertisement was to begin 
with an overshot of the Roman 
Coliseum. As the camera zoomed 
in on a close-up of frightened 
people and hungry lions, the 
Emperor would give the familiar 
"thumbs down" signal. Sud- 
denly, one of the Christians would 
rise and begin singing, "I wish I 
were an Oscar Meyer wiener. " 
For the finale, a giant hot dog 
would be lowered at the precise 
moment the lions were about to 
devour the Christians, and thus 
save them. 

Friedkin recalls, "That's when 
I left Chicago. I figured it was 
time to split." The place he 
"split" to was Los Angeles. 
There, he worked for David 
Wolper for three years. 

Friedkin aledged that his first 
impetus to make films was the 
result of two experiences. First, 
he saw the motion picture Citizen 
Kane, and was very impressed by 
it. Then he went to New York and 
was introduced to cubist art for 
die first time. 

In cubism, the young, man 
found purpose for film-making. 
Along with cubist art, films "try 
to suggest depth in what is 
usually a two-dimensional ob- 

Friedkin's first real op- 
portunity to work with this idea 
came when he directed The 
French Connection. 


Patricia Sigman 

He presented a film clip of the 
chase scene from that picture. 
Many were surprised to learn 
that the sound and filmed action 
were done separately for the 
scene. Friedkin considers the 
scene's major effectiveness as 
due to editing and the addition of 

Although the shots of the chase 
were all done just as they ap- 
peared, without slowing the 
speed of the camera down, 
Friedkin claimed the filming of 
the shots was not dangerous, with 
the exception of one unplanned 
collision. Most were made to look 
more dangerous than they ac- 
tually were by the use of camera 
angles and distance. 

Friedkin then guided the topic 
to The Exorcist. He divulged that 
the film deals with realistic 
events. The story was based upon 
an actual case of "demonic 
possession" of a fourteen-year- 
old boy. 

Virtually everything in the 
exorcism scenes were things that 
have actually happened and, 
Friedkin added, "there's more 
than that." 

Most of the special effects were 
achieved live on the movie set. 
Almost everything done had no 

Friedkin screened a clip of 
several test shots from his 
director's notebook. These shots 
illustrated the mechanics and 
possible effects to be achieved 
with special devices and makeup. 

Friedkin discussed the motion 
picture rating system. He an- 
swered audience questions for 
almost an hour, before leaving 

Faculty Retreats 

Dr. Joseph Sittler, guest lecturer spoke at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 
p.m. on Monday April 1 with a panel of responders and an open 
forum. Tuesday at 8:15 in Nygreen Hall he talked on Theology, 
Literature and the arts. 

Yep, you missed it! Yogi Bear 
and Quick Draw McGraw were 
here Tuesday, March 5 in 
Nygreen as Art Scott and Daws 
Butler from Hanna-Barbera gave 
a presentation on animation. 

After an apt introduction by Dr. 
Ledbetter, Mr. Scott presented 
some of the history concerning 
animation. Beginning with 
sketches of Mickey Mouse and 
Donald Duck, he spoke of the 
wide-spread animation- 
consciousness which became 
evident 17-18 years ago under the 
auspices of Walt Disney. This, 
however, was not the beginning 
of animation, the grand-daddy of 
the motion picture. Mr. Scott took 
us all the way back to 50 BC and a 
poet-.philosopher named 
Lucretius. In one of his poems he 
speaks of that trick of nature 
where the eye remembers what it 
no longer sees. This philosopher 
saw nature as animated in the 
sense that we see the swininging 
of a lantern in the night as a 
streak of light. Alas, animation 
was born and progressively since 
that time, technology has been 
trying to achieve its motion. 

"Animation is no good without 
a story," Saying thus, Mr. Scott 
went on to explain the 15-20 week 
proceedure from the writing of a 
story to the finished cartoon. 
Animation has grown from flip 
cards to a mass corporation 
segmented into various depart- 
ments. The sound can be singled 
out as being of particular in- 
terest. There must be a voice 
track, sound effects, and the 
background music. These are all 
blended together with one as 

After escorting us through the 

technology behind animation, 
Mr. Scott introduced us to Daws 
Butler, who has probably done 
more characters in the animation 
business than anyone else. In- 
cluded in this length list are: 
Yogi Bear, Huckelberry hound, 
Quick Draw McGraw, Sooper 
Snooper, Baba Louie, Mr. Jinx 
and Captain Crunch. 

Great experience 

Mr. Butler, as well as Mr. Scott 
showed a great enthusiasm for 
their work. Indeed, Mr. Butler 
spoke of his work as "one of the 
greatest experiences!" He 
doesn't just speak the part of the 
character, but acts the character 
out just as if he were on stage. 
When he takes on the voice of a 
new character, something 
physical happens to him, he says. 
He takes on the entire physical 
and facial gestures of that 
character, not just the voice. 

It was indeed an honor to listen 
to two men who expressed such 
an eagerness and fervor for their 
work. One can imagine with what 
competence each man works at 
his distinct occupation to bring 
animation to us! 


The Orientation Committee for 
next fall is sponsoring a contest 
with first prize being $5. The 
contestants will be designing a 
cover for the orientation program 
hand-out, the theme being 
Threshold of a Dream. The 
design must be on on 5X8 or 
smaller and turned into the Dean 
Kragthorpe's office. For further 
details, call Paul Huebner or Ger 

Dean Ristuben has spearheaded 
a series of faculty retreats at 
Casa des Maria, nestled against 
the mountains just south of Santa 
Barbara. Each is to be chaired by 
the prospective department 
chairmen and are planned for the 
following dates: March 15-17- 
Natural Science, March 29-31- 
Humanities, April 19-2l-Social 
Science, April 26-28-Creative 

After projecting upon the fact 
that, though the faculty is con- 
tinually meeting as a unit, the 
peculiar devisional concerns are 
not delt with enough, Dean 
Ristuben had an idea for these 
divisional retreats. He wrote to 
the Lutheran Church of America 
stating his idea and asking 
whether they would consider 
financing these retreats. The 
response was indeed generous 
and encouraging, leading to more 
people and additional plans. 

At these working retreats, 
objectives and goals are stated, 
but not before the division looks 
at where they are now in terms of 
their prior goals and objectives. 
Seeing the progress which has 
already been accomplished, they 
will reinstate and expand their 
divisional direction. Those areas 
of particular importance are: 
Planning-as related to the Master 
Plan, advisement, and 

Dr. Johnson chaired the March 
15-17 retreat for the Natural 
Science Division and felt that 
there was a great deal ac- 
complished. "Though it was a 
working retreat," he stated, 
"everyone seemed to have had a 
good time," which would tend to 
explain with that cooperation and 
unity the work was carried out.

T.V. Studio 
ready for work 

Sara Lineberger 

Ever since Don Haskell has 
been at CLC, he, along with other 
interested people, has known the 
unbelievable uses for audio- 
visual equipment for a school. 
When Haskell was a freshman at 
CLC the education department 
had audio-visual equipment, and 
found it useful for many different 
departments such as sports, 
music, dancing, and speech. 
However no one had any real 
jurisdiction over the equipment. 
Dr. Richard Adams got 
together with Haskell and talked 
about getting a T.V. and radio 
studio. They got a com- 
munication arts major this year 
with lecture courses only. 
Obtaining Equipment 
Dr. Edmund played an 
essential role in acquiring the 
equipment for the studio. He 
knew Al Aus who had the 
equipment and was trying to sell 
it. Aus sold CLC the equipment 
for ten cents on the dollar in May 
'73. Tom Frankhauser gave the 
money to CLC specifically for the 
equipment and the studio. 

Next, they needed a place to 
put the equipment. Haskell ap- 
proached Dean Kragthorpe and 
asked him if he could use the CUB 
as the studio. As a matter of 
coincidence Kragthorpe had 
decided to move the pool tables 
from the CUB to the dorms. So 
there was now a place to set up 
business, but it had to be built 

On October 3, 1973 the first nail 
was pounded, and on January 16, 
1974 the electricity was turned. 
After eight years of planning 
Haskell realized his hopes, that 
CLC could have a T.V. and radio 

Chamber Society 

The potential Chamber Society 
introduced itself March 9, and 
started off wit h great 

"* The" society's debut took place 
at the Thousand Oaks Raquet 
Club, with a capacity crowd of 
close to 100 persons in at- 
tendance. The evening started 
with an elaborate buffet dinner 
followed by the Chamber concert. 
The performers were Mrs. 
Betty S. Bowen on violin and 
viola, Mr. Carl Swanson on 
harpsichord, Ms. Pam Dloughy 
on flute, Mr. Charles Thomesen 
(of the CLC Conejo Symphony) 
on oboe, and special guest artist 
Ms. Cathy Dirkson on'Viola de 

They performed a one hour 
baroque concert consisting of 
three pieces; (l) by Telemann, a 
concert for harpsichord, violin 
and viola de Gamba, (2) by 
Tartini, a sonata for flute, oboe, 
and viola, and (3) by Quantz a 
trio sonata for flute, violin, and 

The Society is now offering 
memberships for its first 1974-75 
season. The contribution is $25.00 
per couple or $15.00 per person. 
The memberships includes two 
dinners per person, and of course 
two concerts with that. 

For membership applications, 
write: The Chamber Music 
Society of Thousand Oaks, PO 
Box 1345. T.O. 91360. 

Interim Course 
During January, Haskell held 
an interim class in t.v. workshop. 
Before the studio was ready for 
use, he had his students write out 
their ideas about what they 
wanted to do. After the studio was 
ready, Haskell had them act out 
commercials to get taping ex- 
perience. Then they acted out a 
play as a soap opera. Haskell 
directed a variety show which 
lasted for 45 minutes. 

Experience is what counts 
Haskell's attitude about the 
studio is that one day of ex- 
perience is worth a whole year of 
lecturing. The ideal class should 
be set up with 20 hours of lecture 
and 80 hours of actual experience 
with the equipment. 

At the present, the studio is 
being used by all departments. 
Haskell takes appointments for 
taping, doing 20 to 25 hours per 
week. Students can make ap- 
pointments to come in and be 
taped making a speech, doing 
something for P.E., or for recital. 
He emphasised the fact that it is 
there for the students. 
Future Plans 
In the future, Haskell hopes to 
start a class on t.v. He will tape 
the lecture in the studio and it will 
be shown on t.v. The students 
wanting to take part in the class 
will register by mail. 

Also being planned for the 
future, is the possibility of having 
an educational radio station. The 
staff has already found a 
frequency and are now applying 
for a licence. The station will be 
student run. Haskell says the 
students don't learn anything if 
the teacher does it all. In order 
for the whole Conejo valley to 
hear it a tower would have to be 
put on top of the hill. 

This year was a heavy drama 
year, with more courses dealing 
with drama than com- 
munications, but next year will 
become a heavy communications 
year with many new courses. 
With a new t.v. class and a new 
radio class along with Dr. Adams 
new class dealing with film 
production, the communications 
majors will have something big 
to look forward to. 

The Messiah 

Thirteen Soloists 

Thirteen soloists will be 
featured in the Messiah when 
California Lutheran College 
presents Handel's masterpiece in 
the gym-autidorium on Friday 
evening, April 5, at 8:15 p.m. 

Nearly 150 musicians will 
participate in the massed choir 
and orchestra presentation which 
will be conducted by Dr. C. 
Robert Zimmerman, veteran 
director with more than 30 years 
experience in conducting choral 

Also featured will be a harp- 
sichord which will be played by 
Carl Swanson, Associate 
Professor of Music. 

All of the soloists are music 
majors and members of the 
Concert Choir and many belong 
to the select group of voices that 
compose the newly formed 
Chamber Singers, a vocal group 
of approximately 20 voices. 

Soloists in Part I will include 
George Willey, Lancaster 
sophomore, who received the 
Outstanding Male Vocalist award 
last year. He will sing Comfort 
Ye My People and Every Valley 
Shall Be Exalted. Willey is a 

Jim Kasten, a bass, will sing 
Thus Saith the Lord and But Who 
May Abide the Day of His 
Coming? Kasten, Cypress senior, 
has won the Californians Choral 
Award for the past two years. He 
was the representative to the 
Lutheran Brotherhood Choral 
Seminar in Virginia in the fall of 

Beyond a Virgin Shall Conceive 
and O Thou that Tellest Good 
Tidings to Zion will be sung by 
Nancy Buckpitt, an alto and 
senior voice major from 

John Lenhardt, Buena Park 
sophomore, will sing the bass 
solo For, Behold, Darkness Shall 
Cover the Earth and The People 
that Walked in Darkness. 
Lenhardt sings in the men's 
quartet and is also Vice 
President of the men in the 
Concert Choir.

The Community Leaders Club 
is an organization comprized of 
members of the local community 
who have joined together to 
support the college and its 

programs. Dean Edmunds, Dean 
of Foreign Students, and Mr. 
George Engdahl, Development 
Office, assisted in arranging the 
luncheon of the sixty-three at- 
tending Club members with the 
foreign students. 

After lunch and an- 
nouncements President Mark 
Mathews opened the program 
with an invocation. Earlier each 
of the guest students had paired 
off with a host member. Each 
host then introduced his student 
to the rest of the membership.

The real credit for the 
program's success belongs to 
Saif and Noman, two students 
from Kuwait, who gave a 
presentation on the location, 
geography, history, and 
economic and political 
backgrounds of their country. 

Their lecture included discussion 
about Kuwait's phenomenal 
growth from an obscure dessert 
country, twenty years ago, to one 
of the wealthiest countries per 
capita in the world today. Also 
discussed was Kuwait's free 

Medical and Education 
programs. After the presentation 
the two students answered 
questions and lead discussion 
with the fascinated club mem- 

Mr. Engdahl acclaimed that 
the lunch was "just an out- 
standing program" and that Saif 
and Noman "really com- 
municated a message" about 
their country and background. 
President Mathews as well 
supported the program and 
remarked that "those members 
of the community who had the 
opportunity to hear Noman and 
Saif appreciated the opportunity 
of obtaining their insights and 
sharing in their country's per- 

Everyone was impressed with 
the fresh insights and the op- 
portunity for individual sharing 
which took place. Mr. Joe 
Bowman, of the American- 
Hawaiian Corporation, then 
brought the afternoon to a close. 

Sadie Hawkins 

Dance a Big 


Saturday, March 23, from 8-12, 
AWS held the annual Sadie 
Hawkins Dance. It was held at 
the University Elementary 
School and approximately 400 
people attended. 

There were several added 
attractions, including a Marrying 
Sam, a Honeymoon Suite, and the 
crowning of Lil' Abner and Daisy 
Mae. This years winners were 
Terry Bridges and Darcia 
Fransen. Memory pictures were 
also taken. 

Two bands played at the dance, 
Pacific Trucking Co., and Funk 

Joyce Howard, president of 
AWS, acted as chairman of Sadie 
Hawkins. She, along with her 
committee made this years Sadie 
Hawkins the success that it was.

Food Service Committee 
Takes Action 

The Food Service Committee is 
officially here! The committee 
has met quite regularly since the 
beginning of the Spring Semester 
and is committed to being a 
bridge of communication bet- 
ween the students and the CLC 
Food Service. Discussions have 
led to actions and many plans 
have been made to further this 
• committment to communication. 
The milk machines have been 
placed in a position so as not to 
interfere with the progress of the 
serving line. The slow up of the 
line, which had been primarily 
caused by the fact that the 
students had to wait for those 
ahead of them to get milk, was 
brought up at a Senate meeting. 
The Senate then suggested to the 
Food Service Committee that 
something be done about this 
awkward situation. After a 
discussion at the first meeting, 
the milk machines were turned 
around by the beginning of the 
following week. 

A passion pink billboard en- 
titled, "Food Foibles" is now 
awaiting your attention upstairs 
in the cafeteria! This is your 
direct hook-up to Lil, the cooks, 
servers, and helpers in the kit- 
chen and the Food Service 
Committee. If you have any 
questions, compliments, or 
complaints just tack it up on a 
piece of paper and express 
yourself as a responsible and 
concerned student. 

Most everyone is aware of the 
$25 hike in board for this 
semester. Everyone should also 
be aware of the drastic hike in 

food prices during the last few 
months. As a mere estimate, 
dairy products have gone up 20 
per cent (yes, this includes ice 
cream), meat 25 per cent, fruit 15 
per cent, and cereals 10 per cent. 
Even the good ol' Doorman's 
standby — beans — has, in most 
cases, doubled. These prices 
were given in the L.A. Times

mailboxes. If you have a literary 
magazine and get another, please 
share it with someone who didn't

one, ask someone who received 
two to share one, or pick one up in 
the English office. 

This is the first Literary 
magazine to come out on this 
campus in a year or so and we're 
interested in your response. 
Student Publications had hoped

The Seniors, in an attempt to 
raise money, has scheduled a 
rummage sale which will take 
place in late April or early May. 
The Seniors have also scheduled 
the following events for the 

Senior Melodrama and Variety

Beach Boys concert, Senior- 
Alumni dinner, Cap and Gown 
Day, Honors Day, and

announced later. 

Despite difficulties the year- 
book staff has accomplished a 
phenomena hitherto unheard of 
at this college. They've produced 
a yearbook that should be 
published the year that it was 
made. The yearbook is to come 
out in May (74!). During the 
summer students will receive a 
supplemtit to their yearbook 
which covers the events which 
will take place in the later part of 
this semester. 

The means and methods of this 
particular yearbook are dif- 
ferent, creative, and hopefully 
better. Your response is very 
important. In trying to reach 
above mediocracy there are 
many hazards and more than 
enough room for failure. Student 
Publications is interested in 
obtaining student response to this 
yearbook, as well as finding out 
the campus's interest in con- 
tinuing to have a yearbook at all. 
Some individuals, it appears, 
believe that we should discon- 
tinue the tradition of having 
yearbooks. Do you feel that way? 
Surveys will be sent out to test 
student sentiment on this 
question, please respond. 

The central purpose of this 
column is to share information 
about student publications with 
the students, and college com- 
munity. If you have any questions 
or ideas, please share them! 

Your ideas and your per- 
spectives are needed. For 
myself, this year is drawing to a 
close, time moving much more 
rapidly than I can run before it. 
The hopes and ideas I had as 
Student Commissioner have not 
been realized. Some ideas found a

This deals directly and per-

distinction is that those who are

Tracksters Streak 

By Bill Funk 

California Lutheran College's 
track team continued its dual 
meet domination, posting nothing 
but wins in March to make 27 
consecutive dual meets without a 

More particulary, the 
tracksters have beaten La Verne 
(122-32), UCSD (132-22), Biola 
(96-58), UC Riverside (94-60), and 
Chapman College (99-46) for five 
wins this year. CLC has won all 
triangular scores, too. 

One week ago, the team 
traveled to Riverside for the 
meet with Biola and UCR. Listed 
below are the events which CLC 

Hammer: Piechocinski; 124-10 

440 Relay: (Haynes, Miller, 
Lenhardt, Rulenz); 44.0 

440 Int. Hurdles: Gumming; 

3-Mile: Wester; 15:27.6 

Mile Relay: (Stormo, Miller, 
Cumming, Acosta) 3:31.6 

Javelin: (Lopez, Rihn, Green) ; 

Despite not winning many 
events, the team was strong 
enough to place for the required 
number of winning points. Final 
tri-meet score was CLC 79, Biola 
58, UCR 55. 

CLC extended its streak with a 
victory over Chapman on March 
19. It was a complete team 

440 Relay: (Haynes, Miller, 
Lenhardt, Rulenz); 44.3 

Mile: (Blum-2nd, and Palcic- 

120 riigh Hurdles: Rihn, 
Stormo, and Allen; 16.3 

440: Acosta, Miller, and 
Taylor; 50.3 

100: Rulenz-2nd 

880: Blum-2nd, and Dineen-3rd 

440 Intermediate Hurdles: 
Cumming, Allen, and Kempe; 

220: Rulenz-2nd, and Lenhardt - 

3-Mile: Wester; 15:04.8 

Mile Relay: (Rulenz, Miller, 
Cumming, Acosta); 3:29.3 

Shot put: Piechocinski, Gud- 
munson, Walsh; 46.1 

Discus: Piechocinski, Gud- 

Long Jump: Cox, and Rulenz- 
3rd; 2p-4% 

Hammer: Piechocinski, Walsh, 
and Stanley; 134-10. 

In looking at these sheet scores, 
it can be seen how CLC won up 
through its 27th consecutive dual 
meet, but how many know that 
Wester was .03 consecutive dual 
meet, and that Stormo and Lopez 
had lifetime bests in the high 
jump and the javelin. 

After Easter Vacation, the 
team will participage on April 20 
in the Westmont Warrior Relays, 
and on426 in the Mt. SAC Relays, 
as well as hosting Azusa Pacific 
College and Stanislaus St the" 
following day. 

Golfers Improving 

Half the 1974 Golf season is 
complete, and the CLC linksters 
have yet to win a match, but they 
have played some tough op- 
ponents, like USC, CS Nor- 
thridge, Moorpark and Pierce. 

And the schedule still is 
crammed with respectable teams 
like Pt. Loma, La Verne, USC, 
and Chapman, as well as 
scheduled competition in the 
Southern California Invitational 
at Torrey Pines, and the Two day 
District Meet at Soboba Springs. 

CLC has lost to Moorpark (0-54, 
6-48), CS Northridge (0-54, 4-50), 
Loyola (7-35, 22-32), Azusa 
Pacific (19-35), Pierce (12-42), CS 
Dominguiez Hills (4-50), and USC 

In a 54 point match, points are 
awarded in both individual and 
best ball categories. Since there 

are six golfers, and six points are 
awarded per match, 36 points are 
possible through individual 
matchups and 18 through best 
ball. More specifically, two 
points are awarded in both 
competitions to the team that has 
the low score for each nine and 
the match. If there are any ties on 
nine hole scores, each side 
receives one point. 
• Jim Borneman has been the 
leader for the team followed by 
Mark Winter and Bill Wyman. 
Close behind them are Mark 
Decker and Bill Funk. 

The team played a couple of 
months ago in an tournament. 

Dlacing last behind CSU 
Fullerton, CS Dominguiez Hills, 
Whittier College, Azusa Pacific 
CoL'ege, La Verne, and Chapman 
and Pt, Loma. 



"No diet stories; Everyone is to 
eat the cake", and "Sombody 
pick up the napkin" were some of 
the interesting things said after 
the CLC's Women Basketball 
team neatly disposed of West- 
mont 43-24 in the season finale. 

It was only the third victory of 
the year, but the margin of 
victory shows how much the 
team has improved. "We keep 
improving," said Mrs. Lynne 
O'Hanlon, the coach. "We played 
a pretty good game. I wish this 
was the beginning, instead of the 
end. We'd do a bang-up job on a 
few teams." 

Most of the improvement 
showed itself in the defense. 
Westmont committed 36 tur- 
novers, and if the jump balls 
which resulted from Westmont 
girls continually being tied up, 
are counted then the turnover 
count would have exceeded 50. 

The amazing part of it all, was 
that several of the girls played 
with the flu, and several got- 
knocked around during the game. 
Karen Alexander for example 
scored ten points and got an 
elbow in the stomach. 

Other scorers were Joyce 
Howard with ten points, Jackie 
Beatty and Cindy Jewel both with 
eight points. 

In the first period, Westmont 
started out with a 1-0 lead but 
CLC came back to lead 8-5. The 
team then widened its lead to 19- 
11 at half, 31-18 at the end of the 
third quarter, and 43-24 final. 

In the weeks preceeding, the 
team had beaten Azusa Pacific 
College 32-27, and La Verne in 
double overtime by two points the 
night before. Jackie Beatty and 
Donna Rydbeck were the team 
leaders for the squad in both 
those games. 


Team No. 1 made up of 
Roberts, Weiss, Bob Parks, Craig 
San Chez, Dave Dockweiler, and 
Joe Marckiwitz started the vear 
off good, but a middle-season loss 
to team No. 6 dropped the team 
into second where it stayed with 
its 5-1 record. One game of the 
seven was not played due to 
faulty communications process 
between the officials and the 

Team No. 6 made up of Walt 
Seeman, Pete Lewis, Stan Price, 
Hank Bauer, Don Richardson, 
Eddie Rulenz, Doug Rihn, and 
Casey McGloughlin powered its 
way through all opponents un- 
defeated, and Coach Larry 
Hoover had been considering a 
Bruin dynasty. 

Teams No. 3 and No. 4 also 
made it to the playoffs with 
identical 4-3 records, but team 
No. 3 was awarded third because 
it had beaten No. 4 early in the 

Team No. 3 was comprised of 
Scott Bush, Rolf Bell, Mark 
Stapel, Dave Croonquist, Tim 
Swenny, and David Sander, while 
team No. 4 was led by Dennis 
McFadden, then Brian Webber, 
Mike Hass, Joe Stephens, John 
Ridenour, Russ Gordon, Jeff 
Aslesen, and Pete Richter. 

Seeman's team easily beat 
McFadden's team 53-27 to ad- 
vance into the final, while team 
No. 3 was beaten by Robert's 

Baseballers Post 9-7 Record 

Great pitching and timely 
hitting have led the Baseball 
team to a 9-7 record after 16 
games, and a 3-1 record in the 

One of these pitching ac- 
complishments was only the third 
no-hitter in CLC history by Steve 
Wield in nine innings against 
Occidental, a 4-0 victory, similar 
to Tom Petelin and Brobech's no 
hitters over USRJ and SCC. 

The season started badly, but 

CLC has rallied: 

CSLA 1-10. (A) 

Point Loma 0-1 (A) 

Point Loma 3-4 (A) 

Pepper dine 4-3 (A) 

Pepperdine 2-1 (H) 

-15 innings 
Claremont-Mudd 3-5

Biola 2-10 (A) 

Biola 5-1 (A) 

LA Baptist 21-0 (H) 

UCLA 6-10 (A) 

Cal Baptist

Cal Baptist 

15-4 (A) 

LA Baptist 

13-3 (A) 


4-0 (A) 


3-11 (H) 


7-5 (H) 

In batting Mike McCavic leads 
with a .667 average. Next is Jim 
Willoughby with a .377 average 
and three homeruns and 17 
RBI's. Also above .300 are Hank 
Bauer, and Rog Snoop with .356 
and .328 averages. Bauer has 4 
homers and 15 RBI's, while 
Shoup has 3 homers and six 

As a team, records made in 
past seasons still seem in- 
surmountable all except for 
homeruns. The Kingsmen have 
hit 18 in 16 games, while having 27 
in 42 games last year. 

Weld and Brobech are the 
strongest two pitchers, boasting 
3-0 and 3-2 records and 2.68 and 
4.76 averages.

It was a close game as the 
score indicates. No team got out 
to more than seven points dif- 
ference in the championship. It 
was Joe Markiewitz and Mark 
Weiss scoring 12 and 10 points to 
lead No. 1 to the narrow win over 
No. 6, which had its best offensive 
puch in Don Richardson who 
scored 12, and threw up the last 
shot in the game. 

The interesting thing of the 
game was that team 6 was tied 
but forgot that they had used up 
all their timeouts. So they were 
socked a technical which decided 
the contest.

Basketballers Close Season; Bowman Named 

to All- Star Team 

April 5, 1974 

ASB Senate Meeting 

- Gary Bowman, recently named 
to the NAIA District III All-Star 
team, and to the All-College 
Lutheran Team, as well as a 
consistent 20 point a game 
scorer couldn't do enough for the 
Kingsmen who lost their final 
three games to Westmont, Biola, 
and LA Baptist. 

Westmont, who beat the 
Kingsmen 70-84, earned the right 
to meet Fresno-Pacific for the 
right to determine league 
champion, a league which CLC 
finished last in with an 0-12 mark, 
3-27 overall. 

Westmont played Azusa 
Pacific after beating Fresno, but 
lost to Azusa for the right to 
represent the District in Kansas 
City. Azusa lost in the first round 
to Indiana St. of Pennsylvania. 
In the other closing games, 
CLC lost to Baptist 85-89, and to 
Biola 56-94. 

The three wins on the year 
came over Occidental in the 
USIU Classic 66-59, the Danish 
National Team 95-53, and LIFE 
Bible College 93-70. 

Bowman also scored 601 points 
on the year, second in the school's 
history to Steve Jaspar, and he 
was named Team Captain, and 

given the Most Rebounds Award 
(308) at the award banquet. 

Other team standouts were 
Butch Eskridge of Dallas, Texas 
who had Most Assists (115), Gino 
Dente from San Diego who won 
the Most Improved Player 
award, and Dane Woll (Best Free 
Throw Percentage-.709). 

Lettermen were Bowman, 
Dean Bradshaw (San Diego), 
Odus Caldwell (Auburn. 
California), Dente, Eskridge, 
Mike Prewitt (Auburn, 
California), Mike Webb (Los 
Angeles), and Woll. 

For the JV's, Quentin Panek, a 
junior from Sepulveda had the 
Best Free-Throw Percentage, 
and was named Most Valuable 
Player. Webb had tie top scoring 
average (14.3), and Greg Dineen 
came in third in scoring with a 
10.5 average. Team Captain was 
Carl Nielsen, and Most Improved 
Player was Edgar Embry. 

Regular squad members were 
Joe Brisco (Needles), Dieen, 
Embry, Jim Garman (San 
Diego), Chris Jones (Placentia), 
John Lobitz (Los Angeles), 
Nielsen, Panek, Paul Pinke 
(Hawthorne), and Jim Vergin 
(San Jose). 

Footballer Lost to Pro 

Last year, California Lutheran 
College became known as home 
of the walking wounded due to 
30+ injuries. But the team 
showed tremendous grit in end- 
ing the year with a 6-4 record. 
Already one starter has been lost 
for the year because Gary Hamm 
has signed to play for the Toronto 
Argonauts of the Canadien 
Football League. 

''We're dissappointed," ad- 
mitted Coach Garrison, speaking 
for an absent Coach Shoup. "He's 
one of the top receivers in 
District HI." 

"Unfortunately," he added, 
"His was a natural skill. He had 
never played in high school." 

Hamm is a graduate of Daniel 
Murphy High School in Los 
Angeles, and at the age of 21, the 
sophomore measures up to 6-2 
and weighs 187 pounds. 

He did sign a pro contract 
before, but that was with the 
Kansas City Royals. He attended 
their academy in Florida, but 
quickly left. 

Then Hamm came to CLC 
where in one season, he scored a 
93 yard touchdown pass, and 
caught 39 passes for five touch- 
downs and an 18.9 average. 

Hamm is presently attending 
Santa Monica City College-where 
he is being tutored by Mike Rae, 
the former Trojan, and starting 
QB for Toronto. 

Other former Kingsmen to sign 
on with the pros are in recent 
years: Brian Kelley who is a 
starter for the New York Giants, 
and Ralph Miller who was a 
transfer tight end from Alabama 
St. and is now with the Houston 

Sam Cvianovich has also 
signed with Toronto, and may be 
used as a linebacker.

First order of business was 
discussion of changes made in 
new Judiciary rules and policies 
distributed at the last Senate 
Meeting. Dean Kragthorpe in- 
dicated that the primary dif- 
ferences from the old document 
lay first in an emphasis on rights 
of accused to insure "due 
process" and secondly that the 
board judging cases where ex- 
pulsion is possible shall be 
student composed. A 

typographical change from the 
word "judiciary" to "hearing 
board" has also been made. 

Dean Kragthorpe was asked 
about the extent and manner of 
record keeping for student of- 
fenses. He explained that a 
minimal amount is unfortunately 
needed, but that letters of war- 
ning would be removed from a 
students record if a project for 
school betterment was 
satisfactorily executed. "The 
goal of our system is not punitive, 
but a change in behavior„'he 

A C.U.B. Report was given by 
Al Waite. Al Waite reported 
Laura Ramsey's resignation 
from her position as Sophmore 
Class Treasurer and his ap- 
pointment of Mike Kirkpatrick to 
fill the vacancy. Mike's ap- 
pointment was approved. 

Two-thirds of the clas vote is 
needed to reinstate a class officer 
impeached by the Senate. There 
was discussion as to why a simply 
majority couldn't reinstate an 
officer. The question was tabled 
and referred to the Rules Com-

Kempfert Heads Faculty 

Wrestling Program Taken to 
Mat; Manpower Problems Cited 

By Bill Funk 

An awesome 51 point blitz by A 
Faculty team, and an individual 
performance of 29 by Al Kemfert 
of Land Development was too 
much for the City Leaders as they 
were smashed 68-30. 

The game, played after the 
Women's Basketball match with 
Westmont, was so close in the 
first half that the Faculty team 
could only lead 17-8. 

Al Kempfert score 22 of his 29 
points in the second half by a 
method commonly known as 
"cherry-picking". Other scorers 

and faculty participants were 
Mike Sheppard (11), Phil Nickel 
(10), Don Hossler (8), Dave 
Johnson (6), George Engda hi (2), 
and Ed Swensen (2). 

The City Leaders were men of 
businesses, like Tex Wadr of 
Conejo Recreation (9), Jerry 
Page of an electricity establish- 
ment box (7), Greg Nesen of 
Nesen Cadillac-Oldsmobile (6), 
Joe Bowman of Westlake Village 
(4), Ed Jones, a former mayor of 
Thousand Oaks (2), Si Johnson of 
insurance (2), and Jack Meany of 
Meany Motors who didn't score. 

At every meet this year, the 
CLC Wrestling team forfeited six 
out of every eleven matches. As it 
stood the team had only five 

Even though more wrestlers 
were found by the end of the year, 
there were three major reasons 
for the shortage of manpower this 
year. There hasn't been an ex- 
tensive enough recruting 
program in the past three years, 
along with injuries and transfers. 

Recruiting was impossible for 
this year's team because the 
wrestling coach, Mr. Greg 
Barker wasn't hired until shortly 
before the wrestling season 
began. Barker was the only 
person willing to take the team. 
Despite inexperience in 
coaching, he agreed that CLC 
should have a wrestling team. 
Unfortunately, he doesn't want to 
coach the team next year 
because he realizes his own 
limitations and how they would 
affect the team. 

Two of the team's best grap- 
plers had to quit because of in- 
juries. Doug Clark injured his 
shoulder and knees, and Tom 
Griego suffered a collapsed lung. 
Two other wrestlers, Mike 
Metten and Kim Coddington had 
transferred to other colleges. 

On the positive side, lettering 
under the program were Pete- 
Brosius (Redlands), Sam Clark 
(Torrance), Kelley Felix (Long 
Beach), Randy Paulsen 
(Claremont) and Bill Porter (La 

Besides lettering, Sam Clark 
was named Most Improved 
Wrestler, and Kelly Felix gar- 
nered Most Valuable Wrestler. 
Doug Clark was named Team 
Captain by Coach Barker and his 
assistant Jim Day. 

Regular squad members were 
Reuben Bouvet (Ojai), Wendy 
Brudvik (San Diego). Thorn 
Griego, Stan Parker, Dennis 
Ritterbush, Bill Schwich (Pen- 
sacola, Florida), and Owen 
Stormo who lives in Moorpark. 

Schools visit campus 

On Marcn y the Admissions 
department sponsored the spring 
'74 high school day at CLC. They 
sent invitations out to schools and 
churches all over California and 
Nevada. Many people answered 
the invitations but were not able 
to come because of the gas 

Early Saturday morning at 
8:30, 161 people registered in the 
Cub for the days activities. The 
majority of the visitors were 
juniors and seniors from high 
school, but there were a few 
freshmen, junior high and junior 
college students. After 
registration, from 9.00 to 10:00 in 
the gym, the students were given 
a chance to see the different 
departments and talk to the 
teachers to discover what each 
department has to offer. 

At 10:00 the Pacific Trucking 
Company played, after which Dr. 
Mathews greeted all the 

prospective students, and Gene 
Ekenstam made announcements. 

Students from CLC took the 
visitors on tours of the college 
from 10:45 to 11:45. The tours 
included the dorms, library, 
cafeteria, and classroom areas. 

At 11:45 lunch was served by 
the fireside circle. 

In the afternoon until 3 o'clock 
various activities were planned 
and the students could choose 
which activity interested them 
the most. The bookstore was 
open, F building was open for 
computer games, and the T.V. 
studio was open for a demon- 
stration of all the equipment. 

The Potters Clay, a Christian 
folk-rock singing group from 
CLC, performed in the Barn, and 
CLC students put on the play 
"Rumplestiltskin" in the Little 
Theater. The Baseball and track 
meet were rained out, 




The 1974 Concert Choir and 
Orchestra tour got underway on 
Friday, Feb. 22 and lasted until 
Sunday, March 3. In these ten 
short days the musicians had a 
lot of experiences ranging from 
wandering among the flower 
guardens in San Diego's Balboa 
Park to playing a slot machine at 
a gambling casino. 

First performance 
The first concert was per- 
formed by both the choir and 
orchestra at Oxnard Civic 
Theater, under the direction of 
Dr. Zimmerman and Mr. 
Ramsey. The following day, the 
orchestra traveled to Leisure 
World in Laguna Hills and played 
a concert by themselves. 
Traveling with the orchestra was 
Connie Lay, a vocalist and CLC 
alumni who sang a couple of 
selections with the orchestra. 

Later that evening, a per- 
formance was given at Riverside 
JC. While the orchestra was 
performing in Laguna Hills, the 
choir was giving their own 
concert at Redeemer Lutheran 
Church in Seal Beach. Later that 
day, the choir traveled to 
Redlands where they performed 
at Redlands Chapel. 

Separate Concerts 
The idea of concerts performed 
separately by the choir and or- 
chestra was new this year. Each 
group had to learn two concerts. 
One routine for combined choir 
and orchestra concerts, and one 
when each group was on its own. 

Sunday, Feb. 24, the choir and 
orchestra met in San Diego and 
played together at the San Diego 
Civic Theater. From there, the 
two groups split and the or- 
chestra went to Yuma, Arizona, 
while the choir performed in 
Palm Desert. The next stop was 
Tucson, where a combined 
concert was held at the Tucson 
Civic Center. The following day 
was Ash Wednesday, where the 
choir and orchestra spent the day 
in Phoenix and attended Ash 
Wednesday services with their 

The touring ensemble split 
again on Thursday. The or- 
chestra went to Prescott, Ariz, 
while the choir's destination was 
Kingman. This was to be the last 
concert the two groups did 
separately; the next day they 
met again in Phoenix to perform 
in a combined concert at Phoenix 
Civic Plaza and then traveled 
.together to Las Vegas where a 
concert was held at Las Vegas 
High School. The group returned 
to CLC after the Las Vegas 

Concert Format 
This year's combined concert 
had a format similar to last 
year's. The Sounds of CLC in- 
cluded a medley from West Side 
Story complete with staging and 
choreography. Also in "The 
Sounds" was a selection from

Bright and early tomorrow 
morning Jerry Swanson and his 
merry band of approximately 
fifteen woodsmen will commence 
the second annual Palm Sunday 
backpacking retreat. The 
campsite is located above Kern- 
ville in the same region that the 
retreat was held last year. 

Sponsored by the Religious 
Affairs Commission, the back- 
packing trip will include a 
celebration of Palm Sunday and 
the passion of Christ. The four

opportunity for the participants 
to grow through experiencing one 
another in setting of native 

In view of last year the plan- 
ning committee led by Sue 
Carlson, has purchased more 
food and advised the participants 
more fully of the equipment 
needed. Due to the inflation of the 
economy the cost has also been 
raised two dollars. 

In rememberance of last year 
and anticipation of what is ahead 
Jerry Swanson comments, "I 
can't wait."

"I've been lately thinking 
about my life's time, 

all the things I've done and how 
it's been. 

And I can't help believing in 
* my own mind, 

I know I'm gonna hate to see it 

I've seen alot of sunshine, slept 
out in the rain, 

spent a night or two upon my 

I've known my ladies 
pleasures, had myself some 

spent a time or two in my own 

I have to say it now, it's been a 
good life all in all, 

it's really fine to have a chance 
to hang around, 

and lie there by the fire and 
watch the evening tire, 

while all my friends and my old 
lady sit and pass the pipe around. 

And talk of poems, and prayers 
and promises and things 

that we believe in, 

how sweet it is to love someone, 
how right it is to care. 

And how long it's been since 
yesterday and what about 


And what about our dreams 
and all the memories we 
shared?" -J.D. 72 

So here I sit, a recent graduate 
of California Lutheran College, 
with no job and alot of dreams. It 
was a long four years, but I en- 
joyed it all, through three 
presidents, an assortment of new 
deans, various comical 
secretaries, frequent hassles 
with the registrar, the continuing 
food service saga, and athletic 
abhorance, not to mention such 
Cal Lu "nostalgia" as Mrs. B toe 
Kazoo band, the NAIA champs, 
limited open house, and of 
course, 50 cent night at the 

I am proud to be a graduate of 
CLC. Attending CLC was indeed 
advantageous. After attending 
CLC for four years, I feel that my 

liberal arts curriculum was 
aimed at developing my ap- 
preciation of the entire world of 
learning, of lasting values and 
independent thinking, which has 
enabled me to shape my nascent 
life for the futuref Naturally, I 
hated those semesters that I was 
"stuck" with religion, biology 
and speech, but I am now able to 
see how valuable they are. 
Having completed the standard 
four year liberal arts education, I 
have found that I wish to continue 
advanced studies of my major 
field at a graduate school. CLC 
made me realize just how 
valuable and important 
academia can be. 

CLC, like all other institutions 
of higher learning, has both weak 
and strong points. I feel many of 
CLC's strong factors include 
excellent faculty — student in- 
lerraclion, devoted professors, 
small classes, and an expansive 
selection of classes to be chosen 
from each semester. Through my 
years at Cal Lu, I found that the 
professors were MORE than 
merely "teachers". They 
became my important advisors 
and counselors but more 
significantly, they became my 
friends. This aspect of CLC's 
liberal arts program is one that 
would rarely be found on a 
bigger, state campus. I enjoyed 
getting to know my professors, 
and being able to cognize them 
outside the classroom situation. 
It is for this reason, that I 
especially looked forward to 
dining with them over lunch in 
the Lu's cafeteria. Whether it 
was to exchange academic 
media, or merely to engate in 
"small talk" this is one im- 
portant aspect of CLC that is 
extremely memorable. 

As previously mentioned, I am 
a jobless graduate. I have 
recently realized that CLC did 
not prepare me for a job in the 
"real world", nor did I learn the 
skills and trades of which are so 
important in landing a job today. 
There are three reasons why 
companies decline upon hiring 
me; 1. I am a college graduate 
(most companies will decline 

upon hiring college grads, as they 
feel the graduates will be lazy 
workers, will expect more 

benefits than they are entitled, 
and most of all, will try to head 
straight for the top of the com- 
pany-) absolutely preposterous! 
2. 1 have no secretarial or clerical 
skills, these including typing, 
shorthand, keypunch operation 
and other such bulltwinky. Oh 
sure, I can type, but 50 w.p.m. is 
way under par in this game. 

3. I have NO experience. 
Somehow, those "wasted" 
summers of working at depart- 
ment stores just doesn't qualify 
me as an "experienced worker." 
Perhaps it is my fault that I 
cannot find a job. But, somehow, 
in that highly idilic American 
Creed, I justly understood that 
once I had completed a "college 
education", I would walk straight 
into a job, related of course, to 
my major field of art. Let this be 
a warning to those of you who are 
still lingering on at Cal Lu. Do 
you want a job when you 
graduate, with high salary and 
numerous benefitts, or are you 
going to be a professional student 
the rest of your life - supporting 
yourself on the 2.00 an- 4wur 
salary you make at Taco Bell? 
For those of your discontented 
with the Lu, I recommend that 
you seriously think about your 
future. Instead of merely tran- 
sferring to a bigger university, 
where you can easily "get lost in 
the crowd", maybe a business 
college, or a trade school would 
be more worthwhile. 

Don't get me wrong I love Cal 
Lu, and I'm thankful' for my four 
years of growth. I DO feel that 
my liberal arts curiculum was 
aimed at developing my ap- 
preciation of the entire world of 
learning, of lasting values and 
independent thinking, which has 
enabled me to shape my nascent 
mind for the future. Academia IS 
important to me, so, watch out 
grad school, here I come! Who 
knows maybe with a Master's 
Degree in Art, I'll be able to land 
a job stuffing aesthetic beauty in

unlimited potential for this 
paper, these publications, and 
this college. 

I challenge each student to 
evaluate the way he or she is 
living their life here, and to ask if 
they are realizing their potential. 
Seldom does one come even close 
enough to their individual 
specialness and "genius" to 
recognize the universe of 
possibilities which have been cast 
aside. Possibilities which we 
have lost in our haste to delight in 
worthless trinkets, meaningless 
talk without conversations, and 
unlived lifes. If the living of life 
does not include living fully here 
and now, then it is doubtful that 
you will ever really live 
anywhere, or even realize your 
own hidden wealth. Become 
concerned. Become aware. Don't 
read about other men's lifes and 
not ever live your own. Don't 
blindly accept opinions without 
having yourself thought. And if. 
you have thought, or ever think, 
act! Write! Share it! Do 
something! What value does a 
thought have if you do not have 
the' personal integrity {o make it 
a part of your life? 

If I, or any other student of- 
ficer, haven't been responsible, 
critize us! Please! Don't let 
polite gentility gag you, nor 
drown your beliefs in mental 
stagnation. If you don't like 
something in our little 
microcosm of the world, change 

it. Run for student office, run for 
an editorship, be a senator, open 
your mouth, at least be awake! 
Student leaders may become 
apathetic, but even in their 
failure they do not rank the same , 
criticism as those who 
disgustedly taunt their leaders 
but will not themselves lead. 
Student elections are coming up. 
Do something. Experience the 
intensities, the changing and 
complex eddies of human 
relationships, and the 
frustrations: the encountering of 
life rather than perpetual stupor. 
Do not let your life close to find 
that the only contribution that 
you made to yourself and the 
world was that you did not get up 

to experience it.

Letters to the Editor 

In Search 
of Company 

Dear Sir: 

This is a rather delicate 
request. Please, bare in mind 
that our human passions and 
wants are entwined within these 
very lines. Our desires are as 

We are at this time confined at 
the London Correctional In- 
stitution in the state of Ohio. 
Being exposed to this en- 
vironment, makes it personally 
difficult, to render unto Caesar 
what is Caesar's This is what our 
human cry and request is all 

If you would, pease, enter this 
letter into your campus paper or 
make it available to your Co-ed's, 
that we the above mentioned 
might establish a warm and 
sincere relationship with your Co- 
ed student body. In hopes that 
their wonderful letters will make 
our time here a little more 
pleasant and enjoyable. 

We the Imprisoned are capable 
of sharing as well as receiving 
Love, and affection. Our hearts at 
this time are greatly influenced 
by loneliness. Warm and af- 
fectionate letter's from Co-ed's 
could certainly replace this 
loneliness, with the joy and 
happiness that comes in 
receiving mail. We would ap- 

preciate any response to this 
humanitarian plea, from some 
lovely Co-ed's of your campus.

Spaghetti: Breakfast of Champs 

Dear Editor, 

After my last letter to you I 
received a great deal of 
congratulations and a few words 
of condemnation for my ex- 
pressed views. For those who did 
not appreciate that article I have 
a few words of clarification. 

It may indeed have looked as if 
I held the football team in great 
contempt. I assure you it is to the 
contrary. I attend every sports 
event that I am able. I cheer at 
victory and, more often, despair 
at defeat. It is for these reasons 
and not contempt that I write 
these letters. 

Below is an article that ran in 
the San Francisco Examiner on 
Jan. 6, 1974. If it is true that the 
teams perform better at less cost 
on spaghetti than steak then I 
think, as a concerned student 
interested in seeing our teams 
win, that it should be im- 
plemented immediately. 

I also thank the coach for 
pointing out that the advantages 
of athletes are exaggerated. So 
for the sake of the team spirit and 
the unruffled continuity of this 
anarchy I will ignore the fact that 
the athletes are the only 
organization of students on 
campus who fly to their 
destination. I shall refrain from 
spreading the idle gossip that the 
athletes are given highest 
prirority in financial aid. I shall 
not point out that our weekend 

meals called "brunch" imply 
that many do only eat twice on 
those days. I will close my eyes to 
the fact that they DO eat steak 
which the rest of us haven't seen 
at all this year, even though 
we're under the same 

Instead I shall drink to the 
espirit de corps and winning 
seasons. Perhaps, though, the 
team will win on spaghetti and 
the entire student body can 
celebrate a winning season with 
steaks for all. 

Edwin McGee 
Spaghetti: Brakfast of champs 

The breakfast of champions is 
more likely to be carhohydrate- 
filled spaghetti, bread and 
potatoes than protein-laden top 
sirloin, said a physician-trainer. 

••A high-carbohydrate diet two 
or three days before a sporting 
event gives athletes greater 
stamina." said Dr. David L. 
Cost ill, director of the Human 
Performance Laboratory at Ball 
State University in Muncie, Ind 

He discussed his revolution in 
athletic nutrition theory at a 
symposium on sports medicine at 
the University of California. 

Dr. Costill said many athletes 
at Ball State usually eat 
spachetti, bread or potatoes, or 
all three, before they are called 
upon to deliver their best efforts 
and strain muscles to peak 

He said proteins are more 

important as long term building 

blocks of muscle tissue than as 1 

reservoirs of the quick energy 
needed by athletes. 

If a muscle is depleted of 
glycogen, the chains of sugar 
molecules found in car- 
bohydrates. "They will virtually 
cease to function," Dr. Costill 

"We find that you can super - 
compensate the muscle by first 
depleting it of sugar and then 

putting the athlete on a high- 
carbohydrate diet for three or 
four days before his event," he 

Researchers at Ball State have 
taken specimens of athletes' 
muscles to find out how they 
perform during various types of 
training and diet. 

They anaesthetize the outside 
of the thigh, make an incision 
and, with a special instrument 
called a guillotine sleeve, sheer 
off a tiny piece of tissue. 

"In this way' we can go into the 
muscle, get live tissue, section it 
and examine it for sugar 
granules." Dr. Costill said. The 
muscle contains more sugar on a 
spaghetti regimen than on a beef 

Dieters too can eat car- 
bohydrates. Dr. Costill said, but 
they'd better run, jump or swim 
it off.

No shortage of blood was ap- 
parent a couple of weeks ago in 
the CUB, as the Tri-Counties 
Blood Bank came to CLC to 
collect blood for a possible 

90 pints of blood was collected 
by 12:30 pm this year, con- 
trasting the 40 given last year. 

It was such a heavy crowd, that 
the eight tables were constantly 
being used, and blood bank hours 
were extended through noon. 

Four requirements were set for 
the donor. The giver should (1) 
not weigh less than 110 pounds, 
(2) not have eaten for four hours 
prior to the "letting," (3) not 
have been ill for at least two 
weeks prior, and (4) not be under 
18 or over 59. Only about 20 were 
turned away. 

According to Mrs. Bessie 
Berglund, psychological things 
caused several students to get 
giddy and light headed, however 
doughnuts and coffee were 
provided just in case hunger was 
one of those psychological 

One student, Sophomore Rolf 
Bell, while recovering from 
donating joked, "I ordered a 
table for three, but the menu 
wasn't exactly what I had 

Mrs. Berglund acknowledged 
the help rendered by Circle K in 
setting up the apparatus used,

Special attempts are being 
made to improve the relations 
between the students and food 
service. However, most of these 
attempts are being made solely 
by the food service. The special 
dinners to be held once a month, 
initially beginning with 
February's International Night 
and continuing with the Sadie 
Hawkins Dinner March 21, can be 
cited as an example. However, 
the students will have a chance to 
really make the peace with the 
Food Service on Amnesty Day, 
April 18. On this day there will be 
nicely decorated boxed placed in 
Alpha, Beta, Kramer. Mt. Clef, 
and McAfee dorms in which 
everyone can return all those 
plates, cups, bowls, trays, and 
pieces of silverware borrowed 
from the cafeteria so long ago. 

April also brings with it a 
Special Dinner. This one is going 
to be one of Lil's very own special 
Mexical Dinners. Be on the look 
out for the smell of tamales!

Sittler Speaks About Environment 

Jeanie Gerrard 

Dr. Joseph Sittler, Professor of 
Theology at the Divinity School, 
University of Chicago, spoke to 
faculty and students April 2. He is 
the author of "Structure of 
Christian Ethics," 1958, "The 
Care of the Earth," 1964, and 
"Essays on Nature and Grace," 
1972. Dr. Sittler presented an 
entertaining as well as 
meaningful lecture on the 
American frontier and its effects 
on theology and literature. First 
stressing that there are themes 
common to all American ex- 
perience, whether it be social, 
literary, or religious, he went on 
to list some central themes, in- 
cluding that of the machine and 
the garden and of the wilderness 
and the settlement. 

Mysterious Frontier 

Wittily advocating that one 
should "steal widely, but steal 
wisely," Dr. Sittler made fine use 
of other material on the frontier. 
Referring to Turner's essay on 
the influence of the frontier on 
American history, he talked on 
the frontier as a symbol of the 
mysterious and the illimitable. 
Its boundless presence negated 
the tightly settled communities of 
the immigrants' old world homes 
and produced a new American 

spirit, one with boundless space 
for a plaything. 

Herman Melville's language 
and settings, which both portray 
a sense of the large and the 
sweeping, were exemplified by 
Dr. Sittler as the effect of the 
frontier on literature. American 
humor, such as Mark Twain's, 
became exaggerated rather than 
subtle. Walt Whitman's very 
words suggested spaciousness. 

Technology is our latest 
frontier plaything. Today we 
traverse scientific rapids and 
climb technological mountain 

No More Space 

Life moves in space and time. 
In the old world (Europe), where 
space was short, people lived 
long years in one spot. On the 
other hand, American frontier 
people had endless space and 
limited time to conquer it. Dr. 
Sittler's main concern is with the 
effects of our historical habit of 
continually moving westward. He 
compared modern motor homes 
to the covered wagons of 
yesterday and expressed concern 
that endless moving is just a way 
of refusing to face our problems. 

We have long reached the west 
coast; the frontier is closed. Now, 
can we, who conquered and 

settled America, maintain it as a 
unified and peaceful national 
community? This wasn't a 
crucial question while the 
wilderness was being newly 
explored, but by America's stage 
in growth, it becomes important. 
Living among one another with 
nowhere to turn — this is what 
makes a country grow up. Dr. 

Sittler sees the revolution of the 
1960's as being beneficial in that 
it drove home to us the fact that 
the frontier is closed. 

Limited Environment 
Responding to a question on 
resources and the environment, 
he maintained that in growing up 
we learn moderation. He used 
France as an example. French 
children don't throw candy bar 
wrappers on the streets of their 
tightly packed country. Because 

of our frontier experience, it is 
hard for us to conceive the en- 
vironment's limits. 

Dr. Sittler sees hope, both in 
America's "antiseptic humor" 
and in the college generation, 
which must love our country but 
be realistic about it, that is, face 
its limits. We will bring America 
to adulthood by trying to work out 
its problems here and now, 
rather than planning to from 
beyond the next hill. 

Fine Arts Center Upcoming 

California Lutheran College 
may soon have a new Fine Arts 
Center to take the place of the 
Little Theatre, Cub, and gym. 
The Fine Arts Center has moved 
up on "the list of priorities" from 
tenth to third, according to the 
Drama department. Construction 
may start as early as next year 
depending on whether or not the 
"Master plan" as Dan Ramsev 
calls it, has been fully discussed 
and resolved. Ramsey says the 
Master plan should be completed 
by March 1, 1974. According to 
Ramsey the Dorms have first 
priority due to the termination of 
the Mt. Clef lease. The Learning 
Research Center or Library 
complex is second. 

Conejo in Agreement 

When discussing the Fine Arts 
Center with members of the 
Drama department it was 
discovered that the Conejo 
community "Conejo Future 
Board" is also planning a Fine 
Arts Center for Thousand Oaks, 
however even though CLC is 
included in the community the 
Conejo Future Board feels that 
the community would not gain 
full use of the complex if it were 
on the CLC campus. According to 
faculty member Don Haskell, the 
community is now utilizing CLC 
facilities (i.e. gym, Little 
Theatre, and Cub) to their own 
full advantage now. Haskell also 
feels that if the community were 
to construct a Fine Arte Center 

they would only build a 
auditorium with kitchens; more 
like an all purpose auditorium 
than a theatre, with classrooms 
and offices. Haskell also revealed 
that the community does not have 
access to Federal monies, 
therefore Haskell thinks it 
unlikely that the community 
could raise the money for the 
Fine Arts Center, whereas CLC 
does have access to Federal 
monies and can gain even more 
support through donations, 
churches, fund raising, etc. 
Consequently Haskell feels it 
would be more advantages for 
CLC to build the Fine Arts 

FAC Needs Support 

If the Fine Arts Center were to 
be constructed, says the Drama 
department it would consist of a 
fifteen hundred seat auditorium, 
a five hundred seat Little 
Theatre, art gallery, recital 
halls, classrooms, and offices. 
Members of the Drama 
Department and Art Department 
agree that if the Fine Arte Center 
were to be constructed it would 
free the Cub, Little Theatre, gym, 
K 1, K 2, and all art buildings for 
further much needed classroom 
space for the rest of the 

As CLC grows it's need for a 
Fine Arte Center grows with it. 
With support CLC may yet have a 
Fine Arte Center worthy of its 

CHAMPION returned to CLC to give a benefit concert 
for the Hopi Indian Tribes. (Photo by Mark Hall). 

Benefit for Hopi Indians Best Yet 


The day following "April 
Fool's" an incident organized to 
achieve a greater humanitarian 
benefit occurred when Blue 
Aquarius and Champion, two top 
rated jazz-rock bands, combined 
their musical expressions in a 
benefit concert for the Hopi In- 

Beginning an hour and a half 
late, the concert opened with 
remarks from Mrs. Ishii, a Hopi 
Indian, on the plight of her 
people. She expressed deep 
gratitude in that the proceeds 
would benefit them through 
helping selected families repair 
windmills, cover water tanks, 
and buy needed feed for their 
cattle. "This is one step in the 
right direction towards assisting 
my talkless brothers throughout 
the nation." 

Before the concert began, Don 
Hossler further commented that 
it was the best activity of the year 

in that it would bring a lot of 
money to the Hopi Indians. Also 
Dan Ramsey expressed sincere 
appreciation for the efforts Don 
Haskell, Don Hossler, and the 
leader of the two bands expended 
to coordinate the concert. He 
concluded energetically with, "A 
lot of energy is here tonight in the 
presence of these two out- 
standing groups." 

Champion opened with "A Song 
for Everything." As the music 
continued, the crowd numbering 
seven hundred began to jive with 
the rhythm, and more students 
were drawn to the concert. Their 
final number was dedicated to 
the whole audience "no matter 
what one believes. We're not up 
here to enlighten you spiritually; 
we're just here to play." 

As an encore Champion played 
a number from the Virgin 
Islands, and in their words, "It's 
easy, but a lot of fun." 

Beginning a spring tour of the 
Southwest, Blue Aquarius 

commenced the second half with 
"Who's Going to Lead Us." The 
46-piece group was organized in 
January, 1973, in London under 
the leadership of Shri Bhole Ji, a 
follower of Shri Guru Maharaj Ji. 
Since then, the jazz-rock band 
has released its first LP, "At the 
Feet of the Master." 

Surrounded by bouquets of 
white and purple flowers, the 
band continued with "We Are 
Love by His Grace" and "A Walk 
in the Forest." Before the closing 
number the band's outstanding 
reception was evidenced by the 
speaker's comment, "You are 
really beautiful." 

Amidst the waving of white 
flags, Blue Aquarius concluded 
with the song "Surrender to Your 

Shortly after midnight the 
benefit concert ended, and as 
Dan Ramsey commented, "You 
missed out on the best concert 
this year if you weren't there."

CLC Prepares for 
Big Summer Program 

Faculty to Pay ASB Senate Meeting 

Preparations are moving 
ahead for one of the biggest 
summer program schedules in 
the history of California Lutheran 
College according to Don 
Garrison, Director of Summer 

More than 2,600 persons par- 
ticipated in programs on the 
campus last summer Garrison 
said, not including the two 
regular academic summer 

"We experienced the heaviest 
volume and generated the most 
income from our program last 
summer than in any previous 
year," Garrison said, "and we 
anticipate our 13 week program 
this year will be even bigger. Our 
dorms will be in constant use and 
filled throughout the summer." 

Sports camps will again 
dominate the activities with 
popular basketball Coach John 
Wooden holding five sessions of 
his camp for boys in grades 3 
through 11 beginning June 23. Bill 
Sharman will also hold two 
camps in basketball in addition to 
Wooden's. Last summer their 
camps alone brought more than a 
1,000 boys to the campus. 

Former Michigan football 
great Benny Friedman will 
return with his one week Quar- 
terback and Receivers Camp 
from June 29-July 4. Friedman 
has held his camp on the campus 
for the past several years. 

Perhaps one of the biggest 
concerns facing Garrison now is 
whether an NFL players strike 
will materialize. The Dallas 
Cowboys who have made their 
summer training camp at CLC 
for more than a decade have 
reserved the college facilities 
from July 1 through August 17. 

Garrison said the ad- 
ministration of the college and 
the Dallas Cowboys ad- 

ministration are both proceeding 
on the assumption that the camp 
will open on time. 

"If the NFL players go on 
strike, they probably would also 
prohibit rookies from coming to 
:amp which they can now do 
because of an agreement bet- 
ween the NFL Players 
Association and new players 
coming into the league. A few 
years ago when we experienced 
strike problems with the 
veterans, the rookies still came to 
camp, so this year we don't really 
know what to anticipate," he 

"Many of our activities 
scheduled around the Dallas Club 
such as our Welcome Cowboy 
dinner (set for July 25), our 
annual Football Clinic and 
scrimmage (July 27) will all be 
tentative at this point", Garrison 

Sandwiched in among the 
many sporting camps will be 
specific events, many of them 
repeaters such as the United 
States Spiritual Life Encounter 
group which is scheduled for 
June 21-26, and gives air force 
families an opportunity for a 
spiritual retreat. 

The Wart burg Academy for the 
West is set for June 30-July 6, the 
Lutheran High School Band 
Camp, August 6-10, the Orien- 
tation Institute for Lutheran 
Teachers, From August 18-24, 
and the American Cheerleaders 
camp from August 11-16. 

Two new additions this sum- 
mer are the American Lutheran 
Church /Women meeting from 
August 15-17 and the Inter- 
Lutheran Church Music Con- 
ference from August 4-10. 

Special orientation days are 
also being planned for incoming 
freshmen for the fall of 1974. 

All in all, it looks like a busy 
summer at CLC. 

Collect Aluminum 

By Terry Nipp 
and Bill Rutherford 

How many aluminum cans 
have you seen recently on the 
grounds of the college? Dennis 
Hopper, age nine, and Steve 
Davis, age eight have found a 
couple hundred on campus a 
week ago. 

Having started two weeks ago, 
the boys looked around apart- 
ment houses, in trash cans, and 
finally on the CLC campus. After 
one week of their project they had 
collected over four-hundred cans, 
and will continue it one more 

The purpose of their search is, 
in their words is to "take 'em to a 
recycling plant and get money for 
them." The boys are not only 
interested in their own pocket- 
books, but Mr. Hopper com- 
mented, "We're doing it for the 
whole world." 

Perhaps we, the college 
community, should follow their 
example and be more active in 
the cleanliness of our own 
campus. If anyone is interested in 
joining the program, bring the 
cans you collect to the trash room 
of Kramer Court; a box will be 
labeled and in the room. 

The Budweiser Beer 
company and the ABC 
Contemporary Radio 
Network are spon- 
soring a National 
College "Pitch-In" 
Week, April 22-27 
Coll eges and Uni - 
ver s i t ies in the 
country are involv 

Beginning January 1, 1974, CLC 
faculty will no longer be offered 
free lunches. This was the effect 
of a memo issued by Mr. A Dean 
Buchanan, Vice-President for 
Financial Affairs, at the end of 

Increased food costs and the 
high cost of the program Itself 
were cited as reasons for 
discontinuing the program. 

The program was initiated in 
the fall of 1972 by President Mark 
Matthews, with the prupose of 
providing the students contact 
with professors outside of the 
classroom. To maintain the 
essential function of the 
program, the faculty will fee abfe 
to pay 75 cents, the cost of the 
food alone, and still be able to eat 
with the students. 

Ms. Lil Lopez, food service 
manager, commented on the 
change and its effect. "Most 
(professors) don'f think 75 cents 
is too bad for a hot meal. The ones 
that ate here will probably 
continue to do so." 

Lil continued her lament of the 
food situation. In spite of all the 
changes she believes students are 
eating well considering they 
haven't had an increase in board 
for three years. Meanwhile, food < 
prices have skyrocketed and 
some things have had to be 
altered. Steak night has been 
abandoned. Instead of ice cream 
once a week it is only offered 
every other week. Meat at break- 
fast and orange juice have gone 
the same route, every other day 
instead of every day. There is 
always some type of juice at 
breakfast and still two meat 
entrees a day, however. The 
sandwich bar has been cut and 
milk has been limited to two 
glasses a meal. This latter is due 
more to prevent waste than 
anything else. 

Ms. Lopez concludes, "I'm 
limited. I have to be very careful 
and work hard to meet my 
budget. It's hard, but it's hard all

Dan Ramsey — spoke of the 
ASB Congress at Occidental 
College he attended. The main 
topic was rising tuition and what 
to do about it. It was urged at the 
congress that a student lobbyist 
in Sacramento should be 
established. The only institutions 
not now represented in 
Sacramento are private colleges 
and universities. 

The best thing" that could be 
done at the present time would be 
to increase or double the state 
scholarship money. Dan ex- 
pressed that he would like to see 
CLC as a charter school of 
California Association of Private 
Colleges and Universities, which 
sponsored this Congress, so we 
could participate and voice our 
opinion. He proposed that $50 be 
given to the association on a 
donation basis. It was decided to 
refer the above business to the 
Executive Cabinet so they could 
prepare a recommendation. 

ASB elections — Joe Stephens 
and Debbie Beck offered to help 
run the elections. Elections will 
be held Thursday April 25.

Mt. Clef Plumbing Fixed

California Lutheran College 
will sponsor an Education 
Seminar for the Ventura County 
area beginning Tuesday, April 30, 
and running through June 12. The 
class is another of a series that 
focuses on contemporary health, 
social and psychological issues, 
and problems concerning 
educators, students, and parents. 

Three semester units of upper 
division credit will be granted for 
the course and it's available to 
educators at the elementary, 
secondary, and college levels. 

The course will be held at 
Buena high school, 5670 
Telegraph Road, Ventura, in the 
Little Theatre from 7 to 10 p.m. 
Cost of the course will be $60 with 
transcript included. 

Julius Bortolin, CLC Regional 
Coordinator, said ten lecturers 
have been assigned to speak on 
various topics. Bortolin will 
conduct registration on Tuesday, 
April 30, beginning at 6:30 p.m. 
and also give a brief introduction 
to the course. 

The same evening, from 7 to 10 
p.m., Dr. Madeline C. Hunter, 
Ed.D, Principal of the University 
School at UCLA will lecture on 
"Increasing Students' Learn- 

Mr. Walt Miller, head of the 
CLC Facilities Office has all the 
answers for disturbing questions 
which were posted last month 
like, "Why all the digging," or 
"Why the fire-alarms," or 
"Where has all the hot water 

There were a couple of days 
last month when there was 
hardly any hot water, and then 
later on, there was no water. 
What was happening? 

"The circulating pump went 
out, and was blowing hot water 
all over the pump room," ex- 
plained Mr. Miller. Since the air- 
conditioners are also in the same 
room, it was entirely possible 
that students were not 
imaginating that water was 
coming out of the vents. As a 
result, the system was turned off 

and a man was sent to Los 
Angeles for the part. 

Then, shortly after the 
discovery of the pump, the fire 
line that supplys the sprinklers 
was discovered to have holes in 
it. The discovery came about 
through the inordinate number of 
fire alarms, and the flooding of 
the lawn. 

Walt Miller described the 
problem: "The thing had never 
been patched properly, so the 
whole thing had to be replaced. 
The four-inch pipe needed was 
difficult to come by, but it has 
been put in, and I hope things will 
be finished". 

Speaking of the fire-prevention 
systems, somebody or some 
people have taken three fire- 
estinguishers from Mt. Clef. Mr. 
Miller urged the cessation of this 
activity, because if it continues, 
and Mt. Clef has a fire, somebody 
may burn.

His image is in us all and we 
discover him by discovering his 
likeness in one another. -T. 

Four blindingly short years ago 
three events tumbled over each 
other so as to numb the country's 
mind and spirit. Our campuses 
were especially stunned. Those 
events were; The Cambodian 
invasion, the killings at Kent 
State, and more killings at 
Jackson State. 

These events are brought to 
mind by memory which has not 
let go of that chaotic contrast 
between Spring and horrifying 
death. There remains much 
material for reflection by any 
person who cares about in- 
stitutional responsibility, 
violence, and the over-all vitality 
of our society. 

The whole issue is sharpened 
this Spring by the filing of 
criminal charges against eight of 
the National Guardsmen in- 
volved in the storm of rifle fire at 
Kent State. The Justice Depart- 
ment's wall of suppression which 
sought to keep the incident out of 

sight was finally knocked down 
under the persistence largely of 
the victims' parents. The 
Scranton Commission had found 
the killings "unnecessary, un- 
warranted, and inexcusable" and 
now four years later the case is 

But what about the deaths at 
Jackson State? The same 
Presidential Commission found 
that they too were "inex- 
cusable." The wall of suppression 
cannot be allowed to stand 
around the unwarranted use of 
deadly force that claimed the 
lives of five students. The same 
leadership and persistence is 
needed to work through the cloud 
of Jackson State which- has lately 
been shown for the confusion of 
Kent State. 

The Spring of 1970 impressed 
upon us our commoness in 
tragedy at the hands of 
authorized horror, not unlike the 
commoness we share with our 
Lord in His crucifixion. May the 
Spring of 1974 show us our 
likeness to Him in a healthful, 
resurrecting pursuit of justice.

cepting applications for the positions of

Dr. Schiotz 

"Ecuminicity" may become a 
term very much in fashion at Cal 
Lutheran this semester as-^a 
result of a seminar conducted by 
Dr. Schiotz, Distinguished 
Professor in Residence. He 
describes "ecuminicity" as a 
movement that serves to bring 
churches together in mutual 
recognition of one another. Dr. 
Schiotz is touring colleges in 
behalf of the Lutheran World 
Federation and the World Council 
of Churches. 

In his first week at CLC. Dr. 
Schiotz observed "strong feelings 
of family solidarity as well as 
openness and friendliness from 
students on up through the 
faculty." He says, "I am sur- 
prised that a college as young as 
CLC has already succeeded in 
evoking loyalty to the college and 
its objectives." 

Dr. Schiotz's faith highlights 
his .disciplined character. The 
ministry was his aim at nine 
years of age, and he turned down 
tempting offers by business firms 
which were prepared to put him 
through school in return for his 
services. Ignoring an insurance 
supervisor who maintained that 
insurance was more important 
than the ministry, he finally 
attained his goal and has no 
regrets about his committments

Music Scholarship at CLC 

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wilber of 
4850 La Cruz Place, La Mesa, 
have established the Krueger- 
Wilber Music Scholarship at 
California Lutheran College, 
(Thousand Oaks) which will be 
awarded annually to Music 
students who are majoring in 
Voice. This scholarship also 
honors the Kruegers, parents of 
Mrs. Wilber. 

The $500 scholarship will be 
granted to sophomores, juniors, 
or seniors who have demon- 
strated genuine interest and 
capability in music during their 
freshman year. 

The scholarship will be ef- 
fective with the 1974-75 academic 
year. Recipients will be selected 
by the Music Department in 
consultation with Mr. and Mrs. 
James Wilber, son and daughter- 
in-law of the Robert Wilbers. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. James 
Wilber are CLC graduates and 
music majors, and both were 
active as soloists and choir 
•members during their un- 
dergraduate years. Jim WUber 
was a member of the Kingsmen 
Quartet and recipient of the 
Outstanding Male Vocal Award 
for two years. 

Arrangements for the 
scholarship were made through 
John Nordberg, Director of 
Estate Planning and Deferred 

Mr. Nordberg stated that "not 
only are we deeply appreciative 
of this strengthening of the 
scholarship program at CLC, but 
we find it most gratifying that the 
Wilbers have, in this way, 
demonstrated their confidence in 
the College's Music program." 

Faculty Scholarships To Be Awarded 

The Faculty Scholarships that will be awarded this year are 
being given for slightly different reasons. 

This year the emphasis will be placed on Academic leadership 
instead of giving the awards on an over-all basis. 

Dr. Johnson, speaking for the entire faculty said "The faculty is 
very interested in Academic leadership." 

No additional monies are involved, and the Admissions and 
Financial Aid offices will make the final selection. 

There will be 8 Faculty Merit Scholarship and 2 National Merit 
Scholarship awards. 

Those wishing to apply may do so through the Admissions office. 

Chemistry majors find homes 

April Price, who will be graduating with a major in chemistry from 
CLC this spring and who has been departmental assistant for the 
past two years, has been accepted by the graduate school at the 
University of California, Riverside for the fall of 1974. April has 
also received a teaching assistantship in the. chemistry depart- 
ment, University of California, Riverside. April is from Thousand 

John Theodore who received a BS in 1973 with a major in chemistry 
has been the recipient of the A.R. JOHANNSON AWARD at 
Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana. The A.R. 
JOHANNSON AWARD honors the outstanding graduate teaching 
assistant in chemistry. The award is based on recommendations 
from the students of graduate teaching assistants. John began his 
PhD program in chemistry at MSU last fall. He is from Granada 
Hills, Ca. 

James A. More land who received his BA with a major in chemistry 
from CLC in 1968 will be completing his PhD in chemistry at 
University of California, Irvine this summer. He is the joint author 
of two journal articles: "Structure and Magnetism of 
Bis(proponato)-p-toluidine copper (II), a Cupric Carboxylate 
adduct with a one Dimensional Polymeric Structure" J ACS 95 1164 
(1973) and "Dimeric Quinoline Adduct of Copper (II)

Baseballers on Losing Streak 


Early in the year, Coach 
Stillwell commented on his team 
"We'll go just as far as our pit- 
ching will take us." The pitching 
isn't taking them far enough, as 
CLC's Baseball team is currently 
on a six-game losing streak. 

In the most recent three of the 
games, CLC has been out-lasted 
12-10 by Azusa Pacific College, 
and taken twice 6-2, and 4-1 by Pt. 

Loma. This adds up to a record of 
9-10, or just below .500. 

To complicate the picture, the 
four or five players who had been 
batting well over .300 are now 
down to .300. 

Over the vacation, the team 
journeyed to Phoenix to play 
against teams like Grand Canyon 
College which is consistently 
rated high on NAIA charts, and 
Chadron St. (Nebraska). 

Golfers Suffered Setbacks 


The CLC Golf squad continues 
winless on the year, losing to 
Azusa Pacific (there) and Pt. 
Loma (Los Robles), during the 
first week of April. 

It wasn't to be expected that 
the team should beat Azusa 
Pacific, but Pt. Loma looked 
promising. Azusa Pacific in- 
cidentally won at Marshall 
Canyon, a county course in San 
Dimas, 48-6, and no one broke 80 
over the rolling course. 

CLC had beaten Pt. Loma 
twice last year, and the way, the 
match started it looked like the 
streak would be continued. 
However, on a blustery, windy 
day, Pt Loma rallied to win 
crucial matches, and won going 

away 40-14. Bill Wyman was 
medalist with a 78, but his 
teaming with Stan Price ac- 
counted for only two of the points. 
Mark Decker and Bill Funk won 
the other 12. 

The golfers will play twice 
more in the month, hosting La 
Verne on April 17, and USC and 
Chapman on April 25. They have 
not played La Verne as of yet, but 
have lost to USC and Chapman. 

The season finishes early in 
May, as the team will play 
Torrey Pines twice against Pt. 
Loma, and also participating in 
the Southern California In- 
vitational. Then, the team travels 
to Los Verdes on May 8 to play CS 
Dominguiez, and top players will 
play a week later in the District 
Tourney at Soboba Springs. 

The sophomore fellows bit off a 
bit more than they could chew by 
accepting the Spur's challenge to 
a public basketball spectacular, 
which the vivacious girls won 42- 

Although Captain Gail Doster 
was confident of an easy victory, 
the good hearted girls were not 
merely playing for personal glory 
or to settle the battle of the sexes; 
this event was centered around 
the Spur's drive for Muscular 
Dystrophy. According to co- 
chairman Anna Bruhn, if all the 
pledges are paid, the drive will 
yield $118.00. She can be reached 
at 492-2643, for those who don't 
know how to go about con- 
tributing their pledge. 
The rules of the game were 
slightly altered. The boys shot 
from behind the 15 foot radius, 
were allowed no fast breaks, 
dribbled the ball across the 
center line and had only 
forewards on the fore-court and 
guards on the backcourt, except 
for one player. The girls were 
also handicapped; tickling was 
allowed, but they had to forfeit 
scratching, and pulling hair. 
Their field goals counted for 
three points, and their freethrows 
for two. 

Frustrated at their impending 
defeat, the boys made sports 
spaghetti of basketball ethics. 
Convicted of a mass technical 
(Ref-Knapping), the whole team 
was fined $1.00. The finale was 
Rolf Bell's scoring at the wrong 
end of the court. On the other 
hand, foul play never entered the 
girl's sweet heads. "Phoenix 
Special" Ann Allen just couldn't 
figure how the ball crawled up 
her uniform. Of course, when No. 
1316 lost her contact lense, and 
the boys were diligently search- 
ing on their hands and knees, a 
few innocent girls thought it was 
their duty to make a couple of 

High scorer for the girls were 
"Big Bad Barb" Bleakly with 10 
points, Ann Allen with six points, 
and Heidi "Duck" Drake with 
three points. Honest Jim Day was

All-Star Tfeam Wins Trophy 


CLC's Intramural Basketball 
All-Star team gave good account 
of itself in a special intramural 
tournament at Pepperdine in the 
final week of March, by taking 
5th, out of the eight teams. 

Tim Swenny, Dave Sander, 
Mark Weiss, Craig Sanchez, 
Mark Roberts, Walt Seeman, 
Mark Hollis, and Pete Lewis 
represented CLC on that rainy 

In the first games scheduled for 
CLC, Whittier pushed past tnem 
40-27, with Mark Roberts pouring 
in 15 points. Swenny had four 

points^ and everybody else had 
two, except Pete Lewis and Walt 

However, since the team lost, 
they played West Los Angeles 
Junior College at 2 p.m. to see 
who would be eliminated. It sure 
wasn't CLC as Roberts scored 23 
points this time to lead CLC to a 
62-41 victory. Seeman followed 
with 19, Sweeney had eight, 
Weiss had six, and Sander and 
Sanchez both had two. Steve 
Pulley of West LA had 27 .points. 

With this victory, CLC had a 
chance to play Biola for the 5th 
place award. CLC won handily 
to win a beautiful trophy. 

WALT SEEMAN sets for return of the 
ball in a recent match. CLC's ten- 
nis team won its most recent match 
5-4, to up its record to 6-7. The 
team, led by Seeman, now travels 
to Southern California College in 
Costa Mesa hoping to even its rec- 
ord. Many opportunities remain for 
tennis buffs to spectate. (Photo

Students Speak Out 


Patricia Sigman 

Student Survey— Do you think 
you are adequately represented 
in student government? 
Vicki Blume No, I don't. I think 
the biggest thing is that the 
senators themselves don't get out 
among the students . . . When do 
you get to talk to them except at 
class meetings and that's when 
you talk to them about your class 
and not about the Senate ... If 
you're voted for, you've com- 
mitted yourself to be a very 
important part of your student 
body, to let the rest of your 
students know what's happening, 
everyone can't attend all those 
student meetings. If you have a 
certain senator who could write 
out his opinion as to what's been 
happening and get some fliers 
out, put it in the newspaper, or in 
an editorial so one could get 
different points of view from the 
senators, you could walk up to a 
senator and talk to him about 
what's going on . . . But then it's 
awkward to go knocking on the 
door and say, "Hey, I want to talk 
to you. ." If students can take 
regents to lunch, why can't 
something be arranged so time 
can be spent with a certain 

In the class meetings I think a 
certain amount of time could be 
spent with your senators. There 
should be more class meetings, 
also ... If they would have them 
like twice or three times a month 
... if there were more, more 
people would probably come . . . 
and they wouldn't have to be long 
ones-just to talk about some of 
the issues. When you have one 
every month and a half, then you 
have a meeting too long for most 
people to stay. I do think, though, 
that when planning class 
meetings, a certain amount of 
time should be set out to talk 
about the Senate. 

Mark Hall For the freshman 
class, it hasn't been served as 
eff icatious as it could have been. 
We have worked together and 
have had certain difficulties, 
particularly in the Senate itself. I 
think it's pretty hard to meet up 
to par like the sophmore class, 
because we've heard so much 
about all that they've 
spearheaded. But our class still 
has the potential and I feel we 

have the people in the freshman 
class that could make it a very 
effective class, particularly for 
the Senate. One thing that I'm 
really happy about is that we 
have good Christian potential 
influence, and fellowship. Some 
of it's been misused, and in a 
sense abused, because we really 
haven't met together a lot ... We 
could have done a lot better. You 
know, it's easy to get tied up with 
other activities on campus, 
primarily because of personal 
interests . . . Being in the Senate 
presupposes that you should have 
the right kind of attitude-to serve 
your class. Being a senator goes 
well beyond setting up activities 
for a class. It means working on a 
budget for ASB and getting into 
the mechanics of student 
government . . . Being an officer 
and a senator, to me, generates 
an interest, it corpora tes the two 
together. If you have two dif- 
ferent entities, then you're going 
to have communications trouble 
. . . The way the Senate is 
structured, we could restructure 
it and in a sense rejuvinate it . . . 
to include officers of other vital 
bodies (inter-club council) who 
could be incorporated into it as 

Joyce Howard Why, yes, I do feel 
adequately represented. 
However, if Senate is going to be 
the governing body, I think they 
should have more members than 
just student officers from the 
classes ... I feel AWS should 
play some part in it. Though the 
AWS council is separate, we 
would still like to be represented 
the best way we can. 
Jim Virgin I have Ray Haynes 
and Ray Bebel both as room- 
mates, and they're both involved 
in Senate, so I must say yes, I am 
adequately represented. 

Could someone who didn't 
have roommates in Senate also 
be adequately represented? 
They could feel unrepresented. 
Yeah, because it's hard for me to 
find any other ways that we are 
represented except if the people, 
like Haynes and Hebel, talk about 
the meetings and what went on. I 
don't find any other way to find 
out that things are going on or 
that they even meet. 

Shelley McLean A reason why 
people are not as involved in 
student activities is because, as 

you get older and out of high 
school, school is important for 
school's sake. . . Other aspects of 
your life grow in importance and 
student government is no longer 
the most important thing ... 
Part of the problem why people 
don't become involved in national 
government is because they 
don't feel its personally that 
important to them-until it comes 
to the point where it actually is. 
Jim Berg Yeah. I know most of 
my representatives. 

Do you know them personally? 
Yeah. Also, they're my friends. 

How did you get to know them? 
Just through contact in the 
groups I'm involved in and the 
different activities that I par- 
ticipate in. 

Do you know what happens at 
Senate meetings? 
Usually, because Tom (room- 
mate) goes to them when I can't 

Why do you go to Senate 

Interested in seeing what student 
government is doing. 

Just like to take an interest ... I 
want to see if I'm represented 
properly and if they're actually 
doing something for the campus 
or just sitting around acting as a 
social organization.

Yam Yad '74 

Well it's that time of year again. 
.Thats right, Yam Yad, and yes its time 
for me to write another article con- 
c erning it . 

This year's Yam Yad is headed by 
Dan Ramsey, Larry Baca, Mark Brandes, 
and myself. Our work project was 
toward the Benson Memorial fund to 
which we gave $800.00. Through the 
year we had sponsored a number of 
events including dances and of course 
our yearly talent show. 

Dan and I were very fortunate 
this year by running across a site 
unhit by previous Yam Yads. This 
site will make all previous sites 
look sick. It ranges from Sherwood 
Forest to Tarzan's Lake to Silver City 
to Robin Hood's Cave to a sound studio 
to Lone Ranger Rock. Directions on 
how to get to this site will be a part 
of our car caravan out there. Make 
sure for the next three weeks you have 
at least a half a tank of gas 
car because round trip, its a 
70 miles . 

At the site you'll park near the 
lake and from there you can explore, 
swim, or go hike a half a mile to 
Silver City. The mudhole we feel will 
not be beat by another. It will be 
bigger than an Olympic size pool and 
be about 12 ft. deep in the center, 
(lifeguards will be available) The 
lake is well tappered but you must be 
careful as it is concrete lined. 
People who do not want to go in the 
hole wear a red arm band and we ask 
everyone to respect them, especially 
because of the size of the hole. 

A better look at Yam Yad '74 will 
come by this schedule of events:

b. Respect arm

tective footwear to 
the sit e . 

d. If any pro- 
blem arises at the 
site go to a secur-

the four Yam Yad 
heads . 

I would in thi 
aticle like to than 
all of you who have 
helped me on Yam

the work of many 
be ruined by the 
unthought of acts 
by few. Yam Yad

last year's article, if you'll 
I stated that this may be the 
last Yam Yad, well the same thing goes 
for this year. College rules apply 
at the site the same way they apply 
at this college. In other words, rif 
you want Yam Yad '75, you'd better p 
play it cool on '74. This startes 
out as soon as you get up in the

to the Christian faith. Believing 
that "every Christian is called to 
be a preacher of the Gospel in 
word and in deed," he stresses 
the effective work that has been 
done through lay people, 
especially in furthering the 
growth of young churches. 

Great possibilities for sharing 
exist between our youthful in- 
stitution and such a wise and 
experienced guest. Assuredly 
each will gain. Dr. SchioU at- 
tended the Sunday Folk Service 
on February 10 and described it 
as "a very worshipful ex- 
perience, a rich morning." He 
remembered that his mother had 
played the guitar when she was 
young and said. "Looks like it has 
gone full cycle." 

Possessing an optimism that 
only a faith as strong as his can 
muster, Dr. Schiotz realizes that 
periods of frustration and 
depression come to all people. In 
the face of these problems, he 
turns to nature's law of renewal. 
Renewal for him is worship, 
reflection, and study of the word 
of God. This recommittment 
zeros out the disappointments. 
Hopefully Dr. Schiotz's valuable 
insight will enlighten not only 
those students in his seminar. 
May the CLC students and Dr. 
SchioU discover each other. 

The month of May is approaching rapidly, 
and soon it will again be time for YAM YAD — 
a time to sit back, relax, and have some fun. 
However, I hope we don't forget so quick- 
ly that last year's YAM YAD could have been 
our last. TA'[ YAD (May Day spelled back- 
wards) certainly is a time for play, but it 
is still a school-sanctioned day. All poli- 
cies and standards of the college are still 
in effect. There is no "moratorium" on rules, 
nor for any student's responsibility or ac- 
countability for his/her actions. 

Last year YAM YAD went very well. The 
"activities" were kept out of the dorms and, 
s for the most part, off-campus. Let's not 
k forget too quickly, nor take YAM YAD for 
'granted. Let's have a good time, but also 
let's have a safe time. 

Don Hossler 

To: The CLC Community 

It's that time of the year when 
we begin to think of Yam Yad. Several 
people have been working and planning, 
but the date is known to only a few. 

Last year I wrote in a letter 
such as this to ask the community to 
participate in this event in the spirit 
of its inception. It was originally 
an activity to bring student, faculty, 
and staff together to share a time 
away from work and study, to enjoy 
the outdoors an some of the 
frivolity which is part of hte "rites 
of Spring." In recent years, the 
day had tended to divide rather than 
unite the community - not only faculty 
and staff from students, but many stu- 
dents themselves had stopped partici- 
pating out of dismay or even fear of 
some of hte consequences. 

The committee last year worked 
hard to insure safety and responsi- 
bility for property, and the event 
showed the fruits of their labor(to 
say nothing of the $800.00 which was 
raised to support the Naomi Benson 
Memorial Library in the Health Center.) 

Again, I write to encourage par- 
ticipation in the original spirit of 
the day. And again as last year, I 
write to dispel any misunderstanding 
there may be about my own responsibi- 
lity. and that of my staff. We want 
to enjoy the day, but it is not a 
"day off" in the sense that we do not 
expect students to take responsibility 
for their own actions. All of the 
standards which exist to provide for 
the safety and well-being of the 
college community will be in force, 
both on the campus and at the off- 
campus site. That needn't detract from 
any one's fun, and, in fact, should 
f uther it . 

. My thanks to all of the students 
and staff who will be working hard 
to make Yam Yad a day of celebration, 
and to all of you who join your efforts 
to theirs.

California Lutheran College's 
newly elected student officers 
were sworn in during the All- 
College Worship on April 24. Our 
A.S.B. President for 1974-75 is 
Ray Hebel. Ray Haynes was 
elected as Vice-president for next 
year. Larry Baca will hold the 
position of Treasurer until a 

special election is held in the fall. 
According to Ray Hebel, the 
office of ASB Secretary is an 
appointed position. He would like 
to thank all the candidates and 
also those who showed their 
concern by voting on lXiesday 
saying, "Since my freshman 
year, student government has 

improved greatly, and next year 
I hope to implement even more 

Class Officers 
Next year's Senior Class of- 
ficers will be Dave Brobeck, 
President and Barb Borneman, 
Vice-president. Manny Sanchez 
will be President of the Junior 
Class, with John Williams as 
Vice-president and Mike Kirk- 
patrick as Treasurer. According 
to Williams, "Manny, Mike, and I 
are going to make next year a 
great year for the Junior Class." 
Next year's Sophomore Class 
President, Mark Hall, plans to 
get together with the class and its 
newly elected officers this year. 
Mark's main aim now is to 
achieve a unity which will build a 
strong class for 1974-75. He hopes 
that the officers' retreat at the 
end of the year will contribute to 
his unity in all levels of student 
government. Karin Hoefer will 
serve as Sophomore Class 
Secretary, and Brian Weber will 
be Treasurer. Doug Kempe won 
the runoff election for Vice- 

AWS and AMS 

Joyce Howard was elected as 
AWS President. As of now there 
is no AMS President; Arnold 
Conrad was elected as Vice- 
president, Paul Pinke as 
Secretary and Sam Clark as 

Commission officers 
The Religious Activities 
Commission will be headed by 
Rolf Bell next year. Edgar 
Hatcher was elected as head of 
Student Publications. Hatcher 
plans on stressing business 
management, that is, reaching 
out to the CLC community for 
support. Hopefully this will free 
the commission for the job of 
developing good publications 
instead of merely trying to pay 
the bills. 

Fuller to Speak at Colloquium 

Buck minster culler, inventor, 
architect, scientist, and 
philosopher, who has gained 
international fame for the in- 
vention of the geodesic dome, will 
be the guest speaker at CLC's 
third annual Colloquium of 
Scholars on Friday, May 10. 

The Colloquium of Scholars 
was initiated at CLC to em- 
phasize excellence in academic 
achievements and is neia an- 
nually in conjunction with Honors 

The various academic 
departments of the college invite 
outstanding scholars in their 
particular field to the campus to 
meet with students for small 
group discussions during the 

This year at 5:30 p.m., a 
banauet will be held at the Los

Robles Inn in Thousand Oaks to 
honor students, invited scholars, 
faculty, parents and their 

Fuller, who is nearing 80 years 
of age, will speak to the 
Colloquim and all interested 
persons in the community and the 
area at 8:15 p.m. in the college 
auditorium. (There will be no 
admission charge for his speech. ) 
Fuller, who is still on the staff 
of Southern Illinois University in 
Edwardsville, 111., as a 
Distinguished Professor, moved 
last fall to Philadelphia where he 
will be provided physical 
facilities at the University City 
Science Center, a consortium of 
17 universities in the Delaware- 
Greater Philadelphia area. 

Once dismissed as a "crack- 
>ot" inventor, Fuller more 


man with the options" and the 
"first futurist". Fuller's fertile 
imagination is at play in vastly 
differing projects in many parts 
of the world from India where he 
is design consultant on three 
international airports to East St 
Louis where he has proposed a 
dome-covered moon crater of a 
city for 9,000 families. 

Fuller often tells his audiences 
that the turning point in his life 
came in 1927, when he was 32 
years old and by established 
standards, pretty much of a 

"I felt I was a low-average 
man. It occurred to me that the 
world was largely made up of 
people precisely like that. So I 
resolved to determine if there 
was something the little in- 
dividual could do to help his 
fellowman, to see if there was 
something the individual could do 
that all the vast corporations 

And he has been doing just that 
ever since. There are now, for 
instance, more than 100 geodesic 
domes in over half the countries 
of the world. His publications and 
poetry are too numerous to list. 
Audiences who hear him ac- 
cording to critics are in for a 
spellbinder. He always lectures 
spontaneously without benefit of 

He usually calls his lecture 
"thinking out loud" and he 
usually lectures for ap- 
proximately two hours. Contrary 
to the usual format, he doesn't 
answer questions and instead he 
uses the time to get "more 
across" to his audiences. 

Mime Artists Hold Audience 

Friday, May 3, 1974 


A New Registration Procedure: 


Mime is an ageless art whichi 
portrays life, death, anything and 
everything through the direct 
path of silence. A highly ob- 
servant and creative mind 
coupled with a finely tuned body 
can provide an audience with a 
seemingly timeless evening of 
one of the most fascinating and 
often poignantly thought 
provoking forms of en- 

Such an evening began at 8:15 
p.m., April 18 in the CLC gym, led 
by the precise mastery of mimes 
Robert Shields and Lorene 
Yarnell Shields. Beginning with a 
technically excellent mechanical 
man and woman piece which 
enthralled the audience and 
opened the concert on a 
humorous note, they led into a 
solo performance by Lorene 
Shields depicting the con- 
frontation of a five-year-old child 
and a gum ball machine resulting 
in a very sticky situation. 

"The Princess and the Frog", 
performed by Robert Shields, 
was another humorous sketch 
providing a fresh approach to the 
well known story for in this 
version the Princess turns into a 

On the more serious side was 
"Evolution ", a piece depicting 
man's eternal conflict with man. 
It progressed to a futuristic battle 
of total destruction . . .almost 
. . .for the cycle begins again, 
leaving the audience with the ' 
strength of hope. 

The final segment, entitled 
"Life", followed the progression 
of a man and a woman from 
infancy through adolescence, 
marriage, parenthood, old age, 
and death. 

In some places it seemed as if 
the simplicity so essential in 
mime for complete com- 
munication was overpowered by 
excessive action which slightly 
disrupted the rhythm of some of 
the pieces. Also of some critical 
consideration was the mouthing 
of words, which, in the form of 
communication utilizing only 
movement and expression, would 
seem to be somewhat out of 

Both Robert Shields and 
Lorene Jarnell demonstrated 
outstanding and unique mime 
form which brought much to their 
audience and hopefully will 
continue in the form of a true art. 

Don Mossier 

Since the beginning of the year, 
Dean Ristuben has been chairing 
a series of meetings called 
"Systems Meetings." Their 
purpose has been to trace 
graphically a typical student's 
four years through CLC. One of 
the offshoots of these meetings 
has been a revision of our 
registration procedures. The 
Dean has felt that it has been 
poor use of students' time to go 
through pre-registration in the 
spring, and then go through it all 
over again in the fall. Thus, he, 
Mrs. Johnson, and several others 
on the committee are working 
hard to devise a new registration 
process. Part of this new process 
has been completed in the form of 
an "early registration" process. 
Rather than pre-registration of 
the past, "early registration" 
will hopefully accomplish the 
bulk of the registration process, 
so little need be done in the fall. 

Early Registration 

Early registration will begin on 
April 29th and run through May 
10th. Junior and senior students 
should register from April 29th 
through May 3rd. Sophomores 
should register from May 6th 
through May 10th. 

During the appropriate week 
each student should pick up his 
registration materials from the 
Registrar. Attached to the 
materials will be a check-off 
sheet. From the Registrar's, 
each student must proceed to the 
Business Office to pay the $50 
deposit for the next year. From 
there the student can proceed to 
either his-her academic advisor 
for advisement or to the Dean for 
Student Affairs Office. Two 
major changes from last year are 
that we are asking all students, 
on or off-campus, to indicate 

their living plans for the next 
year by stopping in at the Student 
Affairs Office. Even on-campus 
students who have already 
requested a specific room, will 
not be assured of that room until 
they officially indicate their 
plans at the Dean's Office. 
Secondly, neither the Dean for 
Student Affairs Office nor the 
Faculty, will clear students until 
they have been cleared by the 
Business Office. 

The last step will be to return 
the registration materials and 
the cover sheet (checked off by 
the Business Office, Faculty 
Advisor, and Dean for Student 
Affairs Office) to the Registrar. 
The materials cannot be ac- 
cepted unless the attached cover 
sheet is appropriately checked 

Other Changes 

Some other changes include: 
All early registration will end on 
July 13th. This gives the 
Registrar time to develop class 
lists, etc., so returning students 
will not have to navigate through 
long class lines in the fall; 
another change is that there will 
now be a $5 charge for any class 
additions. We believe this is 
necessary to encourage students 
to seriously plan out their fall 
schedule. Any plans to make 
checking in during the fall easier 
and shorter is contingent on an 
few class changes as possible. Of 
course, there will be no charge 
for class additions due to cir- 
cumstances beyond the student's 

There will be explanations of 
the new "early registration" 
process at the Registrar's Office. 
We believe this will be a step 
toward making the registration 
process less time-consuming for 
the majority of returning

"II the cards are not returned 
at the end of the current 
semester," they stressed, "the 
veterans cannot automatically be 
enrolled for upcoming summer 
or fall sessions, if they plan to 

Also, it was pointed out, 
veterans attending college under 
the G.I. Bill must keep the VA 
informed on changes in the 
number of dependents or 
education programs. 

"At the same time," officials 
continued, "college registrars 
should insure that the veteran's 
enrollment for the school term is 
certified promptly to the 
Veterans Administration, to keep 
allowance checks coming on 

Details on education benefits

Marty Vasquez and Meredith 
Moore, both CLC freshman, 
came here this year and felt the 
need for an expansion of the CLC 
students into the community. 
They not only saw a chance to 
expand the base otfour campus, , 
but also to expand the activities 
of the Red Cross Youth Program 
of Ventura County. There being a 
fund set aside for the Red Cross 
Youth Program of Ventura 
County which has not been 
adequately utilized, they put the 
two needs together and have 
come up with a unique program. 
Student Involvement 
A group of CLC student have 
become more aware of volunteer 
work and involvement in the 
community as they planned and 
carried through parties at the 
Long Beach Veterans' Ad- 
ministration Hospital, March 21, 
and the Los Robles Hospital, 
April 25. Next year the group will 
be giving parties at additional 
hospitals, convalariums, child 
care centers drug centers, and 
the mentally retarded ward at 

Camarillo State Hospital. 

The participants at the parties 
are usually split up into three 
groups. The entertainment group 
usually consists of guitarists, 
singers, and a skit. The social 
group provides a one-to-one 
correspondence between the 
students and those for which the 
party is being held. This is 
sometimes attained by playing a 
variety of games, while at other 
times by participating in craft 
work. The refreshment group 
sets up the refreshments and 
serves them. Everyone par- 
ticipating in the party provides a 
refreshment of some kind. 

Continue During Summer 

Marty and Meredity are 
hopeful (hat a group will continue 
with these activities during the 
summer session so that CLC can 
bring some mentally retarded 
and handicapped children to the 
Summer Olympics, usually held 
at UCLA. If you are interested in 
participating in any of these 
activities, please contact JVIarty 
Vasquez or Meredith Moore. 

The Veterans Administration 
has timely advice for one million 
veterans studying at colleges and 
universities under the G.I. Bill: 

Return those "cert" cards 
promptly to insure payment of 
education allowances for the 
final month of training. 

Officials explained that the 
certification of attendance card 
the veteran receives with the 
next final check should be filled 
out, signed and returned to the 
VA regional office. Otherwise, 
the agency can't prepare a final 
check for the current school year. 

For most veterans, final 
months of training are May or 
June, and most "cert" cards will 
be mailed in April. Forms 
already have been mailed to 
veterans whose enrollment 
periods end earlier, however. 

The officials cited another 
reason veterans should return 
their "cert" cards promotlv: 

ASB Senate Meeting 

Plumbing the Unknown 

A P.R. Release 

From "Apparitions" to 

"Satanism," from "Exorcism" 

to "Witchcraft," mysteries which 

have intrigued and haunted 

humanity since time immemorial 

are covered in a big, fascinating 

book: Encyclopedia of the 
Unexplained — Magic, Oc- 
cultism and Parapsychology, 
edited by Richard Cavendish 
(McGraw-Hill, $17.95). 

As Prof. J.B. Rhine, the 
founder of parapsychology and 
world-famous for his ex- 
periments in telepathy and 
precognition, notes in his In- 
troduction, "This is a most 
unusual volume. In it are listed 
scores of the strangest topics 
imaginable, fantastic claims 
about man and his nature and 
destiny that in the past have been 
banned by Churches, govern- 
ments or schools, and hidden 
from the young at home and the 
public library. They have been 
ignored and scored by scientists. 
Now, however, they are 
assembled and conveniently 
listed with readable articles for 
the. growing number of people 
who are curious." 

Concise and lively articles, 
arranged alphabetically and 
cross-referenced, range com- 
prehensively over experiments in 
extrasensory perception; the 
study of drugs and dreams; 
historical mysticism such as the 
Cabala, witchcraft, alchemy, and 
the Tarot; practices like Yoga 
and the sexual rites of Tantra; 
ancient doctrines such as rein- 
carnation; the views of believers 
in curious occult cosmologies; 
the results produced by famous 
mediums, and the tape recor- 
dings of "spirit voices." 

A splendid collection of pic- 
tures, some published for the first 
time illustrate the entries. An 
Index of Persons and Book Titles 
cites those who are too obscure to 
be covered by the extensive 
cross-referencing and lists titles 
of books not included in the 
Bibliography of over 500 

A leading authority in the 
history of magic and occultism, 
Richard Cavendish is the author 
of "The Black Arts" and editor of 
"Man, Myth and Magic." Prof.

Graduate Chinese 

A four week Institute for 
Graduate Chinese Studies has 
been announced at CLC begin- 
ning Jun 17 and running through 
July 12. 

The Institute has been 
organized by Dr. Edward Tseng, 
Chairman of the Political Science 

"The primary goal of the In- 
stitute is to enhance the student's 
awareness and understanding of 
the cultural ideological roots of 
both traditional and modern 
China, the socio-political con- 
ditions of the Chinese people and 

Studies Institute 

the complex problems con- 
fronting the relations between 
China and the rest of the world," 
Dr. Tseng said 

Several outstanding in- 
structors in Chinese Studies will 
be teaching the courses including 
Dr. Joseph T. Chen, a native of 
Shanghai, who is currently a 
Professor in the History 
Department at the California 
State University-Northridge. He 
recently published "The May 
Fourth Movement in Shanghai" 
and has taught previously at 
Immaculate Heart College and 
UC- Santa Barbara. 

Dr. Laurence G. Thompson, a 
native of Shantung, received his 
Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate 
School, and is Director of East 
Asian Studies at USC. He has 
served in the U.S. Foreign Ser- 
vice in the Far East. 

Dr. George Wang, also a 
Chinese native, received his 
doctorate from Columbia 
University and is Professor of 
Economics and Chairman of 
EastAsian Studies at California 
State College, Dominguez Hills. 
He is Executive Vice President of 
the Pacific Area Intercollegiate 
Council on Asian Studies. 

Dr. Edward Tseng, a member 
of the CLC faculty since 1965, is a 
native of Nanking, and received 
his Ph. D. degree from New York 

University. He has served in the 
United Nations and taught at 
Long Island University, and 
California State University, 

In addition to the academic 
courses, Dr. Tseng pointed out 
that specialists would be brought 
to the Institute for evening 
programs designed to acquaint 
students with the food, customs, 
dances, and culture of China. 

Admission to the Institute is 
open to qualified un- 
dergraduates, college graduates 
and graduate students who are 
not under academic 

disqualification at other in- 
stitutions. Applications for ad- 
mission are available from the 
CLC Graduate Studies Office.

CLC Centered 
Las Vegas 


Las Vegas night, held last 
Saturday night, April 20, featured 
three musical groups for all- 
night-long entertainment. 

Dave Barrett was the star 
attraction entertaining while the 
gambling was in process with 
two hours of music. Later in the 
evening, Mike Lawler, Eric 
Chun, and John Golden provided 
further entertainment until 
Pacific Trucking Company took 
over as the highlight of the 
evening, playing for the Las 
Vegas night dance that concluded 
the event. 

AMS president Dane Woll 
(AMS sponsored Las Vegas 
night) judged the evening to be a 
success in as much as everyone 
present had a good time. Woll 
added that he was, however a 
little disappointed in the faculty 
turnout. "There was a big dif- 
ference in the way that Las Vegas 
night was advertised this year 
and last year. Last year tickets 
were sold all over Thousand 
Oaks; T.O. High School etc., but 
this year we tried to keep it more 
in the CLC family. Even the 
musical groups were composed 
of CLC students. So I was a little 
disappointed that more faculty 
members didn't show up." 

Despite his disappointment, 
Woll was still pleased with the 
evening's turnout and estimated 
300 people were bitten by the 
gambling bug.

Netter Season Obtains 500 Percentage Track Team Place Fourth 


Last issue, theCLC tennis team 
was doublefaulting on serves, 
had no courts, and was under .500 
average with six wins and seven 

Well, team members are still 
defaulting, the courts are still 
being worked on, but CLC won 8-1 
over LIFE Bible to go even on 
the year. Everybody won, but 
Sherill Ketscher, the number 
eighth ranked player on the 

Of the defaulters, Shawn Howie 
seems to be having the hardest 
time. "This is partly due to 
psychological problems and can 
be overcome by practice," ex- 

plained ,Coach Greg Barker. 

Top player John Ridenour 
seems to be naving problems too. 
But they are with winning 
matches. "John has a weak 
record due to the fact that CLC 
has a fairly balanced team ability 
wise. Most other teams have a 
strong first man, and a much 
weaker second man," admitted 
Coach Barker. 

Early in the year, Coach 
Barker had been promised new 
available tennis courts, but the 
ground crew forgot to cover the 
prepared ground back in March. 
Rains hit, and prolonged the 
building stage. They are still 

In the meantime, matches have 
been played at school on both the 
main courts and those by 
Mac Afee. Also at the Sunset Hills 
Country, but Barker doesn't like 
the arrangement, because 
members get mad. 

But despite problems, there is 
hope for the future. "We are a 
growing team; all the members 
will be back but the first man. 
Also coming are four outstanding 
players, gathered in by the 
Admissions Department," ex- 
claimed Barker. 

Looking back, Barker said, 
"This has been a building year in 
which a solid foundation has been 

Baseballers Charging Despite Inconsistencies 


"We're inconsistent. When we 
•get a good pitching job, our 
hitting breaks down and vice 
versa." These were the words of 
head baseball coach Ron Stillwell 
after watching his team get 
ripped by Cal State Dominguiez. 

TheKingsmen horsehiders now 
have a 13-17 overall mark, and 
own a 5-9 District III record. 
However, optimism is high since 
the CLC squad stands only IMj 
games out of second place with 
eight district games remaining. 
The second place team in each 
division of District in will par- 
ticipate in a playoff tournament 
to decide who goes to the 

Over Easter, the Kingsmen 
traveled to Phoenix to stage a 
three game series. In the first 
game, pitcher Barry Brobeck 
turned in a fine performance to 
upset a highly touted Grand 

Canyon College (26-6) crew. 
However, Grand Canyon College 
bounced back to top CLC the next 
day 9-6 to split the two games 

In the third and final game of 
the road trip, CLC beat Chadron 
St. of Nebraska 8-0. Hard- 
throwing right hander Steve Weld 
went the distance to pick up the 
win throwing a shutout and a 
crafty five-hitter. Shortstop 
Larry Hoover had a good trip 
finishing with six hits, including a 
380 foot homer in the three games 

The Kingsmen returned to the 
Golden State only to be defeated 
by Westmont on the Warrior 
diamond. Soney Hyatt led the 
game off with a triple, and Roger 
Shoop added his fourth round- 
tripper of the season to highlight 
the action.

first homer in extra innings in a 
double header over Dominguiez 
3-2. Again Weld went the distance 
to pick up his fifth win of the year. 
Before the game. Dominguiez 
sported a flashy 11-1 conference 
record and a comfortable four 
game lead. 

Catcher Jim Willoughby led the 
Kingsmen in the second game. In 
the 8-6 win, Willoughby collected 
three hits including a triple and 
his sixth homer of the season. 
Pitcher Mike Moline threw five 
innings of shutout work to stifle 
the Toros hopes. 

However, the Toros came back 
to blast the Kingsmen 14-6. 
Dominguiez hae built up a 14-1 
lead until CLC came to bat in the 
ninth. Dominguiez blasted eleven 
hits compared to only four for the 

All the remaining eight games 
are at home, with 

doubleheaders falling on the next 
three Saturdays. 

Golf Team 
is Winner 


CLC's Golf Team finally broke 
through for its first win out of 14 
tries as they defeated visiting 
LaVerne 31-23 Wednesday April 

Although the match was not 
decided until the last group 
finished, Mark Winter (74), Bill 
Wyman (79), and Mark Decker 
(80) led the team in score and 

Coach Robert F. Shoup 
gloating in the win, bragged, 
"The team is in the midst of rapid 
improvement. We're on a big one- 
win streak, and we are not 
resting on our Jaurels." 

The term "resting" is not quite 
truthful, as May (the closing 
month) promises to be very busy. 
The team closed out action in 
April by hosting USC (B Team), 
and Chapman in a triangular. 
Both had beaten CLC before, and 
both by near perfect 54-0 marks. 
Yesterday, the team traveled to 
Torrey Pines in San Diego to play 
Point Loma (a 40-14 victor from 
an early April match.) 

Next Monday, action will 
resume at Torrey Pines, as the 
course will be the site for the 
Southern California Invitational. 
Jim Borneman, Winter, Wyman 
and Decker will represent the 

Two days later, the group is on 
the road again visiting Los 
Verdes on the Palos Verdes 
Penninsula and challenging CSU 
Dominguiez Hills. 


Saturday April 20, the CLC track 
team travelled to Westmont for 
the Warrior Relays in which they 
placed fourth with forty-five 
points; only four points behind 
second place Fresno Pacific with 
forty-nine points and three points 
behind third place University of 
Nevada Las Vegas scoring forty- 
eight points. The host school, 
Westmont, won the meet with 
ninety-eight points. 

The relay squad of Haynes, 
Miller, Acosta, and Reulenz, won 
both the 440 and 880 relays with 
times of 43.5 and 1.30.7, 
respectively. Miler and Haynes 
also ran fourth and fifth 
respectively in the 100 yd. dash. 
Acosta, Miller, Rulenz, and 
Blum, took fourth in the sprint 
medley relay and Jerry Cox took 
second with a lifetime best record 
ot 22'4%" in the long jump event. 

Cox was also fourth in the triple 
jump and Nakerville fifth. 
Richard Lopez was runner-up in 
the javelin throw. 

The two mile relay squad of 
Palcic, Blum, Dineen, and 
Cumming, set a new school 
record for that event with a time 
of 8.20 taking a fourth place, 
breaking the previous record of 
8:46.6 set in 1966. 

Other squad members placing 
were Wilber Wester, fourth in the 
steeplechase, John Van Auker 
sixth in the pole vaulting, and 
Owen Stormo and Doug Rihn 
placing fifth and sixth in the 120 
high hurdles. The distance team 
of Palcic, Stormo, Cumming, and 
Wester ran sixth as did the mile 
relay team of Rulenz, Miller, 
Cumming, and Acosta. 

April 26 the Kingsmen 
travelled to Walnut for the Mt. 
Sac relays but the results of that 
meet were not in by press time.

Clc's Rugby team won two and 
lost two in the University finals to 
close out their season. In regular 
play, the Kingsmen went 8-1 to 
take first place in the Northern 
Division in a Southern California

Besides going almost un- 
defeated, the Kingsmen took 
fourth and eighth in two tour-

Santa Barbara. 

CLC had been scheduled into 
the college level of rugby, but, UC

Paid by Hayes Sanata Committaa 

Laird Hayes of Santa Barbara 
is seeking the Democratic 
nomination for the California 
State Senate for the district that 
includes Ventura and Santa 
Barbara Counties. 

Hayes, 24, is a graduate of 
Princeton University where he 
majored in Government. He 
received a Master's Degree in 
Higher Education from UCLA 
where he is employed in the office 
of the Assistant Dean of Housing. 

A native of Santa Barbara, 
Hayes graduated from San 
Marcos High School where he 
was Student Body President, a 
member of the California 
Scholastic Federation and an All- 
League player in football and 


"His image is in us all and we 
discover Him by discovering His 
likeness in one another." — T. 


A Guardian Angel sent his 
charge my way asking for an 
original quote on peace. This 
angelic quest stirred several 
visions of "shalom." I would like 
to share them. They might 
prompt some images of your 
own. Don't hesitate! The angels 
know that without a "vision" the 
people perish. 

Remember that shalom is the 
Word's word for peace. It is a fine 
word on the tongue and even 
better in the heart. The peace of 
shalom is completeness, 
aliveness, we-ness. 

Shalom is a Fred Bowman 
aebel skiever after a Sunrise 

Shalom is Golda Meir and 
Answar Sadat sitting down to a 
meal of figs on the Golan Heights.

Shalom is a massive movement 
by a minority of the world's 
population who are Christian and 
possess the vast majority of the 
world's goods to dispossess 
themselves to the advantage of 
the whole world.

Hayes was appointed by 
Republican Senator Thomas

States Senate. He also worked in 
the Washington office of 
Congressman Charles Teague. In 
1971 he was a California Delegate 
to the White House Conference on 

Hayes lives at 400 Via Dichosa, 
Santa Barbara. His younger 
brother attends the University of 
Nevada. Two older brothers are 
attorneys in Santa Barbara. 

Hayes cited the reasons why he 
is seeking his party's nomination 
for the seat being vacated by 
Senator Robert Lagomarsino: 

"First, he said, "we need to 
bring people back into the 
governing process. The 
helplessness felt about the ac- 
tions of government must be 
replaced by confidence that 
problems can be solved, needs 
can be met." 

"Second, that problems such as 
high taxes and the soaring cost of 
government exist, is a fact of life. 
But that these same problems 
remain unsolved year after year 
suggests the need for fresh new 
leadership to work on them." 

"Third, people have lost faith 
in government and in those who 
are supposed to represent them. 
If faith is to be restored, elected 
officials are going to have to 
demonstrate higher levels of 
integrity and concern than they 
have in the past." 

"Fourth, your Senator should 
listen to and represent the people 
. . .not the oil companies or 
political groups or special in- 

"Finally," he added, "I believe 
the people of Ventura and Santa 
Barbara Counties deserve better 
than politicians who are solely 
motivated to perpetuating 
themselves on the public payroll 
and voting themselves ever- 
higher salaries." 

Echo Deadlines 

To the CLC community: 

Sara Lineberger recently took 
over the editorship of the 
KINGSMAN ECHO, a fact not 
known by the general student 
body. Since Sara is my roommate 
I have been in a good position to 
observe the workings of the 
newspaper and just what the' 
editor has had to put up with. 
Considering what she has to put 
up with I think she has done a 
good job. But that's not my point. 

The newspaper is one of the 
school's main sources of com- 
munication. Use it! If your 
organization is planning 
something or has some other 
announcement, get it to the editor 
or one of the reporters as soon as 
you can! Don't expect the 
reporters to be everywhere that 
you are. The sooner you get the 
story or announcement in, the 
sooner it is published. 

The paper copy is sent in a 
week before it comes out. 
Remember, therefore, that there 
is a deadline. If you are late in 
getting it in, it just won't get in 
the paper. 

You, the CLC community, help 
make the paper what it is so get 
off your bunns and do something.

On finding out that Robert 
Shields and his wife Lorene 
Yarnell, two great mime artists, 
were to appear on the CLC 
campus, I was expecting to find a 
sell-out crowd, so I took care to be 
there on time. When I arrived I 
was very disappointed at the size 
of the crowd. The first couple of 
rows were scattered with people, 
and the rest of the Gym was 
empty. I thought to myself that 
soon more people would be 
coming and the Gym would be 
packed in no time at all. Although 
people did start coming, the Gym 
was in no way packed and I must 
confess I was very embarrassed 
for CLC. I wondered what else 
might be happening to keep 
everyone away, but nothing of 
importance came to mind. Then I 
thought that maybe the students 
and faculty of CLC had already 
seen the best mime artists at 
work and didn't want to waste 
their time on the Shields' per- 
formance. Of course, that must 
be it, the people that go to school 
here are so very experienced that 
they didn't want to waste their 
time on a minor mime per- 

Well, I was determined to at- 
tain this status too. So I watched 
and was held transfixed 
throughout the entire per- 
formance. When the curtain first 
opened, I saw two bodies stan- 
ding perfectly still, with ab- 
solutely no movement at all, not 
even the little sway that usually 
accompanies this effort. As I sat 
captivated, Robert Shields and 
his wife played the parts of two 
robots. It was in this opening 
performance that I got my first 
glimpse of a true mime artist at 
work. Imagine seeing two robots 
with human features and you 
might begin to understand the 
situation I was in. The muscles in 

Dear Students: 

The Mexican Dinner was the last special dinner sponsored by the 
Food Service Committee. We sincerely hope everyone enjoyed 
themselves at this dinner, as well as the two previous ones. We are 
looking forward to a continuance of this program next year by an 
ambitious and energetic committee. All those who are interested in 
working to better the communication and involvement between the 
students and the Food Service, please keep this committee in mind. 
Come next year, and become an active participant! 

Sincerely Yours,

the legs must be developed to the 
fullest extent in order to do what 
they did, walking by sliding their 
feet along the floor, but not 
bending their legs at the knees. I 
suggest you try it if you think it 
is easy. 

Throughout the entire per- 
formance I was continually 
amazed at what I saw those two 
people do. I could not imagine the 
practice it took for Robert to 
jump six feet into the air from a 
squat position, grab his feet, and 
then land again in the same squat 
position without losing his 
balance. Another amazing feat 
took place when Lorene was 
playing the part of a cowboy and 
leaned against the imaginary 
bar. I was held spellbound as I 
saw her body tilted at a 35 degree 
angle, resting on nothing. Later 
that night I tried to do it, but' 
couldn't without losing my 
balance. I could go on for hours 
about their fantastic abilities but 
I am afraid I would bore you. 

Instead I will say how lucky I 
feel to have been able to ex- 
perience this performance, 
something most of you must 
already know. I am happy to say 
that I too am now a person with 
experience in the area of mime 
artists. But now that I have seen 
this performance, I am deter- 
mined to never miss one again. 
Why then didn't people go to this 
one? Even though they might 
have seen better, Robert Shields 
and Lorene Yarnell are 
professionals in their field and 
are held in high esteem across 
the country for their great talent. 

It has been noted that- 75 per 
cent of the students are apathetic 
to 75 per cent of the events on 
campus. If this is going to con- 
tinue the students may find the 
administration in control of the 
Concert Lecture Series.

Bon Voyage Seniors 



On Sunday, May 26, California Lutheran College will hold its 1974 
Graduation Commencement exercises. An event significant, not 
only in its recognition of commendable individual achievements, 
but an event which is in itself a celebration of dedication, com- 
mittment, sometimes stubborness, patience, endurance, learning, 
growing, and life itself. 

Commencement exercises begin at 3:00 o'clock when Seniors are 
to gather at the Gymnasium. The procession begins at 3:20 and 
proceeds in the following manner, double file: colorbearers, 
Marshals, Seniors, Faculty, Regents and the Platform Party. The 
Marshals are Dr. Zimmerman and Dr. Kallas. 

After the Procession Seniors are to remain standing for the In- 
vocation and the Opening Hymn. At this time the awarding of 
Honor's Degrees will take place. The recipients are Thomas 
Bradley, Mayor of Los Angeles, and O. Fritiof Ander, Professor 
Emeritus of History at Augustana College in Rock Island. 

The Honor's Degree presentation is to be followed by this years 
Graduation Commencement speaker, Dr. David Preus, President 
of the American Lutheran Church. Following Dr. Preus, Diplomas 
are awarded to those individuals sucessfully completing their 
Bachelors or Masters studies. The presentation of Diplomas is 
concluded with the closing Hymn and the Benediction. Seniors 
proceed in the Recessional and pass through the Honor Corridor, 
formed by the Platform Party, Regents, Faculty and Marshals. 

Seniors proceed on to the Flagpole for the closing ceremony and 
Farewell presentation. Participants are requested to proceed to the 
reception in the Auditorium. 



Out Loud 


This reporter's impression of an 
impressionistic talk: The brain of 
the human is finite, whereas the 
mind is eternal . . . 

We are all born naked, 
helpless, and ignorant, and yet 
we have 100,000 experiences that 
require words . . . Einstein and 
Freud wrote to each other about 
war and how they both abhorred 
it so, and thought that maybe the 
culture of man would change so 
that everyone would abhor 
war . . . 

Although the world is round, 
man treats it as though it is an 
infinite flat surface . . . 

Life on earth is mainly 
sustained by water, and the 
water on this planet is the only 
water in the universe that we 
know of . . . Although man is so

Banquet for Scholars 

Radio Station for CLC 

The buffet banquet for the 
Colloquium of Scholars was held 
at the Los Robles Inn, on the 
evening of May 10. The evening 
began with a social hour, 
followed by a buffet dinner and 

Dr. John Kuethe, presiding 
over the event, initiated the 
evening by introducing the food. 
After everyone had eaten their 
fill and had a chance for seconds, 
the short program began. 

Reverend Gerry Swanson gave 
the invocation. Dr. Schoitz gave 
the greeting. He expressed his 
warm feelings toward CLC and 

how much he had enjoyed the 
beauty of our campus. 

Dr. Kuethe had the students of 
the honor society and the faculty 
stand to be recognized. Dr. David 
Johnson, advisor to the Honor 
Society, introduced Pamela 
Holley and Eileen Keener, the 
vice presidents of the Honor 
Society. They shared a talk on the 
meaning of Honor's Day. 

Other groups asked to stand to 
be recognized were those 
students receiving departmental 
honors and assistantships, the 
administrative tram, and 
members of the board. 

Dean Ristuben gave a short 
talk on academic excellence. One 

of the reasons, he said, for 
coming here was that he was 
looking for close, respectful! 
student-professor relationships. 
He said that in honoring and 
praising students for their 
achievements we are honoring 
and praising the professors. 

Dr. Lyle Murley and Dr. 
Pamela Rich presented com- 
memorative plaques to the 
visiting scholars. Eight of the 
nine were present. The 
achievements, of each were read 
as the plague was presented. The 
plaques were made by the Art 
Department of CLC. 

The evening closed with a 
benediction from Pastor 


CLC has submitted an ap- 
plication to the FCC for the 
purpose of attaining a license to 
broadcast over a radio station 
here on campus. 

It will take about 60 days for a 
construction permit to be ob- 
tained after which call letters will 
be selected. After that CLC has 
one year to build a radio station, 
but hopefully broadcasting will 
actually begin in the fall. 

FCC provides a low power class 
"D" FM station in hopes that the 
college can serve the community 
in which they are located, and to 
encourage the college to use their 
station for practical experience 
in broadcasting. FCC assigns ■ 
frequencies on the basis of power 
and location and since there are 
only a few frequencies available 
licenses are granted to colleges 
who will offer a balanced 
program of classical music, a 
campus profile of students and 
faculty members, as well as 
public affiars. 

There are a great number of 
Educational stations on the air 
now, but most of them operate on 

Mono and CLC, if granted a 
license will be operating on 
stereo from the beginning. 

The CLC radio station will have 
an 8-10 mile coverage radius and 
will operate from 5-11 PM with 
hopes of expanding the broad- 
casting hours in the future. A 
remote control transmitting 
antenna will be placed in Alpha 
dorm, and the studio will be in the 

When asked about the ad- 
vantages of a radio station on 
campus Dean Peter Ristuben 
offered, "I think the radio station 
will be an important academic 
facility, complimenting the new 
TV studio, and providing yet 
another way in which the college 
can serve the community." 

Mr. Ken Wales who has given 
$1,000.00 for a feasibility study of 
a radio station at CLC and has 
been vital in the development of 
an engineering report, selecting 
an appropriate place for the 
antenna and the selection of 
equipment to be used stated that 
"the success of the station will 
depend greatly on students from 
all fields who wil contribute their 
experience to the station."

Future and Changing World 

By David Brobeck 

Robert Milton of McDonald- 
Douglas Air Craft Corporation 
presented a symposium on 
futurism sponsored by the 
Kellogg Foundation. CLC's 
Sociology department, headed by 
Dr. Thomas, organized the event. 
Mr. Milton was sought following 
a recomondation from President 
Mathews. Mr. Milton and 
President Mathews are personal 

Mr. Milton is a physicist with 
degrees from UCLA and spent 
time as a research pilot. He is 
presently a long range planner 
for McDonald-Douglas and his 
hobbies include body surfing. 

Mr. Milton presented two 
programs. He held a seminar on 
"Forcasting the Future" for 
selected students, faculty, and 
community members. Following 
a dinner in the CUB, Mr. Milton 
spoke to the public reviewing his 
major points of the seminar and 
offering new topics. In 1965 the 
Douglas Corporation was in- 
volved in a long range plan of the 
future. The planners viewed data 
from 1945-1965 in order to see the 
trend the world had been taking. 
Three major pathways were 
decided upon; a strong free 
world, bi-polar decay, and a 
soviet world. 

The strong free world seemed 
to be the most favored in 1965. 
The United States was to have 
many close allies and would 
continue toward international 
relations and power. Indications 
were strong towards a strong free 
world. President Kennedy's 
inauguration speech was very 
internationally oriented. Even 
President Johnson appeared 
strong by sending the Marines to 
the Dominican Republic in 1965. 
The possibility and outcome of an 
Arab-Israeli war was predicted 

in 1965 (Six day war, 1967, Israeli 
victory). A possible escalation of 
the war in southeast Asia was 
considered, however it was ex- 
pected to be very short due to the 
American technology. All the 
factors would contribute to a 
strong free worlds 

Bi-polar decay was the second 
forcasted world. Here the United 
States and Soviet Union would 
relinquish some of their in- 
ternational power and become 
more internally oriented. A big 
push for this type of world was 
the civil rights movement in 1963 
and ethnic problems in the Soviet 

The third world, a soviet world 
was feared by American military 
leaders more than the forcasters. 
Here they pictured a communist 
take over of Africa and South 
America and a cold war similar 
to cold war in 1955. 

Presently we are living in bi- 
polar decay. The strong free 
world failed because of under- 
estimation of the news media. In 
all other wars Americans only 
heard of the atrocities. For the 
first time, in Southeast Asia, we 
saw what was going on every day 
in the war via our newspaper, 
radio, and TV. Because of such 
advances in technology, 
demonstrations, violence, and 
apathy towards peace and in- 
ternal problems, the strong free 
world theory was falling. 

Be-polar decay began to take 
hold in 1966 with the Watts riots 
and was confirmed when Richard 
Nixon took office in 1969. His 
inauguration speech was a 
complete reverse of JFK's, only 
eight years earlier. 

Each year the United States 
seems to become more internally 
concerned, as does the Soviet 
Union. The entire world is 
moving closer together and is 
becoming more dependant on 

Junior Glass Book Exchange 

John Williams 

Next Fall the Junior Class will 
be sponsoring a STUDENT 
Bl '<)K EXCHANGE. The student 
book exchange will allow 
students to buy books cheaper 
and get better prices for the 
hooks you would have sold at the 
school book store. You, the 
students, will set your own book 
prices and the exchange will put 
them on the shelves for sale. The 
student book exchange is planned 
to operate in the Mt. Clef Foyer 

for aboul a week starting on 
istration day. The Junior 
lass will earn 10 per cent on 
service charges and is planning 
to use this money to sponsor a 
dance, speaker, film or some 
other worthwhile event. 

Mike Kirkpatrick, the Junioi 
Class Treasurer, and I have 
talked to Dean Kragthorpe about 
the student book exchange and he 
believes it is a good idea. Dean 
Kragthorpe seems enthusiastic 
about studentsponsored activities 

each other. Imports and exports 
are a need of every country. The 
European standard of living is 
rising fast. The West German 
living standard is almost equal to 
America now. 

A rising economy is really 
hurting the underdeveloped 
nations of the world. Starvation is 
so high in one African country 
that the people are digging every 
bit of grass from the ground to 
feed their animals. Experts say it 
may take 50-100 years before the 
field can be planted again. 

India is facing a great crisis. 
Wheat has tripled from last year 
and they don't have the economy 
to accept such an increase. 

Mr. Milton stated; "by 1990 the 
.United States will be the biggest 
country economically but it will 
be a nation among nations." The 
United Nations will play a larger 
role toward international 

Technology is moving so 
rapidly, he feels it is imposible to 
predict one decade to the next. 
Where it took 112 years to 
develope the camera, and 56 
years to have radio, the tran- 
sistor was created in three. The 
ocean will become a garden for 
cultivating food, not just catching 
it. Even the answer to aging is 
seen soon. 

In less than 25 years there will 
be no energy crisis, if we 
develop properly. There is 
enough oil, technology is needed 
to extract it without great ex- 
pense and environmental 
damage. Nuclear fusion is not far 
off and would provide endless 

Possibly the most encouraging 
statement made by Mr. Milton is 
that we are heading for a better 
world Dependence on each other 
and all men, technology cleaning 
the world, and good people like 

i Milton to tell us what is going 


which supplement our ex- 
penditures with new revenue. 

To run the book exchange we 
need workers to operate it as well 
other items like tables and 
bookshelves. Mike and I are now 
taking names of students who are 
willing to work in the book ex- 
change next Fall. Sign up if you 


The student book change needs 
you so next Pall please make it a 
success by bringing all unwanted 
texted books in to be sold 
Kcmcmber, profits from the 
exchange will be used to sponsor 
a future dance, film or other 

ASB Treasurer's Report: 

by Larry Baca 

One of the greatest respon- 
sibilities that our student 
government is charged with is 
that of exercising control over the 
nearly $25,000 comprising the 
A.S.B. budget year to year. In 
past years, there have been what 
some have chosen to call in- 
descretions, abuses, or outright 
scandals, and with this in mind, 
this year's A.S.B. government 
took steps to eliminate such in- 

Through the use of a special 
form that must be used anytime 
A.S.B. money is spent, and the 
elimination of a regular bank 
checking account, several 
disadvantages have been 
removed, and some advantages 
have been gained. One severe 
disadvantage was the over- 
dependence of the other officers 
of the A.S.B. on the treasurer to 
disburse funds. He and two other 
officers (usually President and 
Vice President) were the only 
individuals who could sign the 
checks, and the treasurer was 
obviously the only one who had 
the checks and related records. 
Another problem was the vir- 
tually complete lack of controls 
on the treasurer. There was 

simply not enough people familar 
with the state of A.S.B. finances. 
Commissioners also oc- 
cassionally overspent their 
budget ted allotment, sometimes 
because they didn't know where 
they stood, and sometimes 
because they didn't care where 
they stood. 

In a vote held nearly a year ago 
at the annual leadership retreat, 
the student senate, upon 
recommendation of the 
treasurer, decided to place the 
A.S.B. money into a special 
account in the business office. 
This was done, and today each 
commissioner can request funds 
on his own, up to a pre-set limit, 
without searching out the 
executive officers for their 
signatures. Each commissioner 
has his own account, and through 
the use of the new form, which 
functions like a check request, 
can sign for expenses and bills 
incurred in the course of his 
commission's activities. Large 
expenditures still require explicit 
senate approval, but this change 
has speeded up the process of 
implementing a program

small in comparison to the 
universe, he has developed optics 
that enable him to see the voids of 
space and learn about them . . . 

While everyone is eager to 
claim what is his, and keep it for 
himself, the air we breathe is 
socialised - we cannot have our 
own air, we must share 

Man is made hungry so that he 
will search for food, and he has :ju 
days in which to find it, but man 
has never had to go search for 
oxygen, it has always been there 

It a town didn't have food they 
went to another town and at- 
tacked them for their food. Man 
would either die from the sword

The making of weapons is an 
age old occupation, and also a 
negative one 

In the beginning the muscle ran 
the world, and is still running it 
today . . 

The big men of the world are 
the muscle, the small people are 
the servants, becoming the 
specialists of the world 

The Navy had refrigeration 
and steel furnaces long before 
anyone on land knew about them 

Children learned things: 
mannerisms, ways of saying 

things, from their environment 
and not their school 

The yount people of today 
refuse to yield to the hard ways of 
life just because people say that 
"that's life'' they say to them- 
selves 'I have sensitivity. I won't 
get tough', they abhor lies and 

Man's mind, is given to solve 
problems, that is man's function 
on earth . . . 

Man is designed to use his mind 
and become a success and not a 
1 a dure, as has been the outlook 
for ages 

Governments don't use their 


The young world is ready to do 
things with their minds 

The bloody revolution is over 
and the design revolution is here 

Evolution is at an ex- 
traordinary moment in history 

The world is changing. It used 
to be that man had to earn the 
right to live (earn a living) but 
now people are saying forget 
about making a living, what can I 
do for humanity! they see that 
inething needs to be done 
In summary - it can be done; 
only the impossible happens.

Music Department Awards Presentation 

On May 8 the music depart- 
ment cordially invited all music 
majors and non-majors taking 
music lessons to attend its 
awards banquet. Held in the 
Little Theatre, the event at- 
tracted thirty-five students, all 
six professors, and Dean 

As the brass ensemble 
harolded the beginning of the 
program Mr. Muser came out on 
stage to MC the coming bill. After 
Dr. Zimmerman had presented 
the departmental honors, the 
Conejo Canaries performed a 
scene from the opera Rigoletto 
by Verdi. Following the 
presentation of the Presser 
Foundation Award, directed 
toward students planning future 
careers in education, Destene 
Hammond graced the audience 
with "Since You Ask" by Judy 

Moving from the contemporary 
folk scene, Vicky Blume 
demonstrated the "talking 
hands" of Hawaiian dancers in 
"My Hawaii" by Elmer Bern- 
stein. A few minutes later the 
faculty in paper skirts were 
demonstrating their ability to 
mimic the same action. Dr. 
Cooper magically appeared 
moments later to dazzle the 
audience with the magic of silk 
scarfs and baby skunks pulled 
from a black hat 

Throughout the program along 
with the instrumental and vocal 

awards many outside grants 
were given out The Krueger- 
Wilber Music Scholarship and the 
Fritz Wunderlich Awards were 
initially presented this year by 
Mr. and Mrs. Wilber, Sr. and Mr. 
Muser respectfully. The Fritz 
Wunderlich Award was given by 
Mr. Muser and his wife in honor 
of the tenor Fritz Wunderlich, a 
former student of Mr. Muser in 
Europe that became world- 
renown before his death a few 
years ago. 

"In an interview with Mrs. 
Wilber after the banquet she 
commented that, "I've worked 
with kids all my life, and I enjoy 
the high caliber of students I've 
observed at the school. The 
school has helped my daughter, 
and the scholarship is the least 
we can do. I wish we could do 

After the women's trio plus 
one, amused the audience with a 
parady of the old fashion, barber- 
shop quartet style, Marshall 
Bowen along with the con- 
temporary Harmony class led 
the entire group in "Cnirps 
Atanos," or spring sonata back- 
wards. Being divided into vocal 
and instrumental classes, the 
dice was rolled and according to 
the number on the dice times ten 
the designated group would play 
for the specified length of time. 
In the end all the groups joined 
together for the final minute.

served and the award recipients

Terry Nipp proposed that a one 
day retreat be planned for the 
beginning of next year to carry 
through the momentum gained at 
leadership retreat. 

New Business 

Religious Activities — Rolf Bell 
proposed that 6 or 7 com- 
missioners be appointed to his 
commission rather than 5. This 
would have to be passed as a 
constitutional ammendment in 
order to be changed. Rolf 
reported that there was $161 left 
in the RAC budget. He proposed 
that $100 be allotted to Spurs to 
help send a delegate to their 
National Convention in Kansas. 
Ger Hatcher objected, stating 
that this might become a general 
practice. Joe Stephens asserted 
that although Senate should not 
give money out in such a case, 
there was no reason why the 
commission shouldn't. After 
some discussion it was 
unanimously approved.

CLC Oaks Nursery 


The CLC Oak Nursery located 
to the right of the baseball field as

beginning of the nursery has been 
temporarily postponed because 
of difficulties in finding a more

Mr. Holding from Colorado

What is the meaning of our 
world in which: Our attempts to 
love others have become 
gateways to contempt and 
ridicule. We are 'friends' today 
and strangers tomorrow- 
brushing against each other, 
politely apologizing, and quickly- 
moving on. 

We play cruel games with each 
other— pretending to be what we 
> are not, thus never getting to 
' know each other as real human 
beings. We go to Church to 'hear' 
the pastor preach, but 'listen' to 
the sound of Joni Mitchell 
strumming through our minds. 
We say 'hello' and 'goodbye' in 
one breath— relationships seldom 
going beyond this. 

We rejoice at another's suf- 
fering, and seethe at another's 
success. Marriage is performed 
in a flash— and ended, in a flash. 
We kill and torture each other in 
the name of God. Our refusal to 
communicate with our brothers 
has led to kidnappings, 
hijackings, assassinations, and 
streaking. We strive to show 
others that we are smarter than 
them, that we are more popular 
than they are, and that we can 
outdo them at their own games. 
Sunday sermons are becoming 
increasingly political. 

Our 'enemies' are those who do 
not play the same games as we 
do, who do not wear the same 
clothes as we do, and who do not 
comb their hair and wash their 
face the way we do. 

'Hunger and thirsting after 
righteousness' has now become 
hunger and thirsting after 
women and wine.' 

Leaders of nations go to Church 
each Sunday and authorize 
bombings and atrocities of in- 
nocent people. 

We forget each other's names 
one minute after we have been 
introduced to each other, and 
smile at each other through our 
eyes, not our hearts. We throw 
food at each other in the 
cafeteria, while ten thousands 
miles, away our brothers and 
sisters are frantically scraping 
food off the ground. We are 
selfish, and refuse to share our 
lives and what we have with 
others. We pray everyday about 
sharing another's burden and 
sorrow, but do next to nothing 
about it. 

'Friendship' is momentary— 
and for personal advantage. 

We don't say what we mean, 
nor mean what we say. 

A person who shaves his head is 
'different', and therefore a 

Church congregations abound 
with hypocrites, liars and 

We refuse to humble ourselves, 
but instead boast and endeavour 
to obtain recognition and praise 
for everything we do. 

We spend so much time talking 
nonsense, when there's so much 
to know, and feel, and un- 

We are suspicious of those who 

truly want to become our friends. 

We run around in groups and 

cliques— never attempting to go 

out and make new friends. 

Brother kills brother and son 
kills father— for money. 

Jim Croces are alive today, but 
are dead tomorrow— without 
warning. John Lennon states that 
the Beatles are 'more popular 
than Jesus Christ.' There is 
nothing but millions of tears, 
heartaches— and broken dreams. 
We use other human beings for 
our own purposes, and then when 
we have finished using them, we 
throw them away like beer 
cans— not realizing that they 
have feelings just as we do. 

Many of us are afraid to con- 
front outselves or are afraid to 
confront the truth and thus hide 
behind superficial masks— we 
have not had the time to think 
about the basic purpose of our 

Ministers of the Church and so- 
called 'theologians' reject the 
simple and humble life that 
Christ has asked them to lead— 
and instead run around in two or 
three fancy cars and live in 'mod' 

We see a blind friend trying to 
cross a busy street— and we look 
the other way. 

Manliness is measured in 
terms of how many women we go 
to bed with and how many bottles 
of beer we drink— and 
womanliness is measured in 
terms of how many men we are 
able to attract and ensnare. This 
'Christian Institution' of CLC 
enhances our intellectual 
horizons through 'follies.' 

We see each other every day of 
the year but begin to really know 
each other only when it's nearly 
time to say 'GOODBYE— FOR 

It's rush, rush, rush— 'no time' 
to make beds or shut drawers. 

Dogs and cats and rats are 
pampered and cared for better

Christian believers are too proud 
to sit and chat with non-believers 
since we think they have nothing 
to offer us.

The "oaks" program is 
designed to get people to commit 
themselves to contribute $100.00 a 
year toward the purchase and 
upkeep of one oak tree. In return 
each buyer is given an oak tree 
and a tree number. A young oak 
will then be planted in the nur- 
sery where it will be taken care of 
until it reaches a certain size, and 
then the tree will be transplanted 
somewhere around the campus. 

The reason for the low cost of 
$100.00 a year is so people will be 
able to participate and be 
identified with the CLC com- 
munity. This program will also 
add to the beauty of the campus. 
The payments can be made 
annually, semi-anually, quar- 
terly or monthly, and these trees 
are often purchased as 
memorials, graduation gifts or

in Summary 

Al Waile's Statement — 
delivered to the Senate May 28, 
his last Senate Meeting as the 
incumbant Sophomore Class 
President of 1973-74: 

Mae West: An Afterthought 



Our whole future depends on 
whether we pass or fail a 'TRUE 
AND FALSE' exam. 

Strangers who come to share 
God's word at a prayer gathering 
are given very strange looks. 

A friend is dying— and we 
hurry off to be in time for an X- 
rated movie. 

We are afraid to approach each 
other and say 'Hi brother' or 'Hi 
sister.' but always wait for the 
other person to make the first 

We cannot emphasize a point 
without using a four-letter word. 

We pass by each other on the 
roadway, and suddenly find it. 
'necessary' to look at our watches 
or bend down and pretend to tie 
our shoelaces— just to avoid 
looking at each other. 


At the student forum in 1973, I 
can remember Paul and I 
standing in front of everyone and 
promising to bring two things to 
the students at CLC: unity and 
communication. One year later, 
and I think it is a good thing, 
candidates stood and promised 
the very same. As I have spent a 
year in Senate working for those 
goals, I would like to take this 
opportunity to convey to the new 
officers present here tonight 
what I have learned. 

First of all, I think there are 
two aspects that need to be 
stressed along with unity and 
communj cation They are ac- 
countability and service in 
Christ. I just want to briefly give 
some of my insights into these 
four points. 

Unity: Unity is not a lack of 
diversity. Unity is diversity 
within the framework of a 
common goal. If we, as officers 
are afraid to dissent from the 
opinions of our fellow officers for 
the sake of "unity", then we have 
nothing except an efficient 
mediocrity. It is diversity of 
opinion that makes the Senate 
responsive to the students. In- 
stead of gettiang down on 
someone who dissents, we should 
listen to him with as much in- 
terest as if we were listening to 
ourselves. We should encourage 
other people's points of view, 
considering them, weighing 
them, never settling for the 
thoughts of one or two vocal 
people. For no matter how loud 
they sound, they may be wrong. 
There is too much at stake in 
Senate than ego or prestige or 
whatever else you relate to that. 
For the sake of the issues we 
must preserve and never 
sacrifice our diversity for unity. 
Unity will come as a result of 
diverse opinions finally resolved 
in a common end, not in spite of 

Communication: com- 
munication means more than just 
publicizing events. It goes beyond 
that. It means being able to work 
with people, neglecting their 
shortcomings and personalities 
which conflict, and respecting 
each other as officers. If there is 
a working base of respect, 
communication will stem from 
there. Where we have failed this 
year (and I admit right now that I 
have been as much at fault as

Auditorium to await a renowned 
director, actress, author, and 
"legend become fact", Miss Mae 

The screening of I'm No Angel, 
a risque comedy in which Mae 
starred with Cary Grant, 
preceded her belated ap- 
pearance. But any crowd 
becomes hypnotized in the face of 
glimpsing a legend, and it waited 
resolutely for the blonde curls, 
nasal coo, and the conscious, yet 
coy come-on of that well wor- 
shipped swagger. When this 
legendary figure finally arrived, 
an uncomprehending, almost 
mechanical pandemonium broke 
loose, and America's 20th cen- 
tury sex symbol went on public 
exhibition for the only time in 

Resting one arm on the podium 
(for a saucy effect, or for sup- 
port?), she faced a generation 
whose blatant concept of 
"sexiness" is irreparably 
removed from that of the 1930's, 
when a younger Mae so daringly 
"showed a little cheesecake". 
She remained in this almost 
plastic stance, to be bom bar ted

our personal prejudices and 

with such questions as, "What 
does it feel like to kiss Cary 
Grant?" These were answered in 
one word or pointedly ignored. It 
wasn't until she was asked to 
comment on her writing and 
directing, that Mae responded in 
a grateful and human way. As 
she began talking about Sex, the 
production for which she was 
jailed on an obscenity charge in 
1929, Miss West's voice quivered 
with excitement and nostalgia. 
Here the crowd's hollow oneness 
finally melted down, to become 
interested persons who were 
touched by the memories of 

It is fairly impossible to 
identify the legendary Mae West 
as an old woman with memories. 
Yet the evidence was there: in 
her voice and in her manner, a 
part of her pled for recognition. 
But still, a part of us wants to 
award her as being the "First, 
Last, and Only American Sex 
Symbol". Perhaps we too are 
digging into the past, to catch a 
last exciting glimpse of a time 
when sex was daringly sym- 
bolized rather than blatantly 
paraded. It was this nostalgic, 
awe-stricken side of us that 
crowded into the auditorium on 
October 12, to shower admiring 
applause on Mae West. 

jealousies to enter into our 
working relationships with each 
other. When respect decays, 
there is no chance for com- 
munication. We all have our 
thoughts and views, however 
wrong they may seem, and 
respect for ourselves must be 
paramount. Communication, yes, 

and energies, our time and 
talents to serve the whole com- 
munity of California Lutheran 
College. We pledge ourselves to

have joined in the effort to make 
this a place of learning and 
growth in love."

Accountability: We must be Cnr,sl our Lord." 

I want to say now to the entire 
Senate that I admit to having 
been a part of the personality 
clashes, for they were there in- 
deed. But what Paul and I did, we 
did because we felt it was right, 
and had to be done. We believe 
very strongly in accountability. 
It has been my honor and my 
priviledge to serve my class this 
year. I thank the class of 76 for its 
support and confidence 

throughout it all, especially when 
things got rough. If I have, in any 
way, damaged the reputation of 
our class, I apologize.

or I am not doing our jobs to 
which we are committed, then 
there must be a system in which 
we can be called accountable 
Service to the students who 
elected us includes ac- 
countability, even demands it. If 
apathy runs rampant; if students 
couldn't care less; we, as leaders 
must remain accountable to all 
and involved that much more, for 
example is ours to set by the very 
nature of our jobs. Conditions 
can't correct themselves by 
inactions or excuses. I think that 
we are -sometimes afraid of 
ourselves and that's why we balk 
at accountability. I hope 
someday that it can be changed. 
You, as new officers, have that

Women's Sports Banquet 

Tennis Finishes Strong 

Beginning at six, on the 
evening of May 2, the female 
collegiate athletes at Cal 
Lutheran participated in the 
second annual women's sports 

Before a dinner of shrimp and 
bar-b-qued chicken was served 
Donna Rydbeck shared a 
devotional message from I 
Corinthians 9:24 dealing with the 
athlete's striving for an eternal 
reward "that fadeth not away." 
She concluded the message by 
thanking the coaches and 
trainers for their continuous 
dedication. A prayer of thanks 
for the food followed. 

Mrs. Lynn O'Hanlon, the 
women's volleyball coach, had 
the honor of heading-up the food 
line and later enthusiastically 
commented, "That's the first 
time I've ever been first in any 


Before Don Bielke presented 
the keynote address Ms. 
Amundson filled in the audience 
of the history of women's 
athletics. Beginning in the 1920's 
Mrs. Hoover emerged as a for- 
most advocate against women's 
participation in sports. As a 
result of her crusade the phrase 
was coined, "horses sweat, men 
perspire, but women glow." That 
started the trend that had con- 
tinued ' until the early sixties 
after which women were in- 
volved increasingly more in the 
Olympics. The seventies have 

be an uphill pull, but the battle is Improved Player. c | nd y k Jev ^ 
won through the efforts of Billy 
Jean King and Dinah Shore." 

He further added that work 
must be done through scouting 
high school events, talking to the 
alumni, and working through the 
extra-circular activities com- 
mittee. "The challenge is there 
and some want to get into it, but

Concluding his remarks, he 
added that the nationwide 
program is weak due to the lack 
of the professional drive; pro- 
grams may have to be tailor- 
made to provide the "communion 
of fun and fellowship on and off 
the floor." 

Mr. Garrison, the chairman of 
the physical education depart- 
ment, then filled in the audience 
on the new sports and special 
programs which may be added 
next year. These are essential to 
the educational process since 
"the main purpose of an 
educational institution is to 
provide enough opportunities for 
its students to fulfill their needs." 

He added that men and

Kris Bliss was named Most 
Improved Player. Jackie Beatty 
scored the most points with 108 in 
fifteen games, and Donna 
Rydbeck tearfully accepted the 
award for the Most Outstanding 
Player. Also, as before, Mrs. 
Hanlon was given a special 
momento from the team 

••One of the high spots of the 
season was the beating of our 
arch rivals, Westmont. in the last 
game of the season in double 
overtime," concluded Mrs. 
Hanlon recapping the season. 

The program concluded by the 
surprise presentation of two 
awards. Ms. Amundson was

Following this historic 
presentation Don Bielke, the 
men's basketball coach, ad- 
dressed the audience on the 
present role of women's sports at 
CLC and the potential of future 
growth. Beginning in a humorous 
vein he retorted to the moto of the 
twenties by clarifying the 
women's role as the bather's of 
the men. Also he commented that 
a major problem of the seventies 
is to distinguish the Ms. from the 


More seriously, he continued 
that with the rise of the women's 
involvement in collegiate sports 
the level of equality must also 
rise. This could be accomplished 
either by allocating more money 
to the women's sports program 
or allocating less to the men's 
program. He indicated that the 
recent trend as evidenced many 
' schools across the country is a 
rise 35 per cent to 40 per cent in 
women's participation in sports. 
"It will have to take time to 
develop a fuller program. It will

Most recently, Bassey Etuk, a 
student from Nigeria, discussed 
the possibility of sending one of 
the senior girls majoring in 
physical education to his country 
at their expense to build-up the 
country internationally in 
swimming. Also the hope is that 
this action may initiate a greater 
individual and team effort bet- 
ween countries competitively. 
At this point of the program 
Joyce Parkel, the women's 
volleyball coach, announced the 
winners of the various awards. 
Karen Allen, Sally Hough. Cindy 
Jewel, Mary Madison. Nedra 
McRevnolds. Dottie Mecklen- 
burg, Molly Michals, Joyce 
Ramsey, and Laura West were 
awarded first year certificates. 
Beth Doe, Mary Ann Fioretta, 
and Marty Hall, the captain of 
the varsity team, were awarded 
second year certificates. Molly 
Michals was acclaimed the Most 

majors for being on campus to 
talk to and work on their behalf. 

Also a special service award 
was given to Gail Geopfert for 
"seeing and fulfilling needs in the 
last four years in the women's 
sports program." 

A special word of thanks was 
offered to Lil for preparing the 
food and to Kathy Windress and 
Karen Emmell. The group left

Baseball game. Baseballers closed out disappoint- 
ing season, placing fith in District III of the 
NAIA, and are looking forward to next year. 

CLC had lost five straight 
games and any chance for a 
playoff spot in NAIA District III 
Baseball competition and things 
didn't look too good for the rest of 
the year. Then the Kingsmen 
hosted Biola last Tuesday af- 

Steve Weld did extremely well 
as he pitched the team to a 4-2 
skid-breaking win. Hitting and 
pitching combined together fairly 
well, as players like Larry 
Hoover, and Hank Bauer 
produced the winning hits. 

Recently, the Kingsmen had 
hosted Westmont in a Saturday 
afternoon doubleheader and lost 
both games, 4-1, and 5-4. CLC got 
its only run in the first game 
when Jim Willoughby singled, 
only to have Bob Taylor hit into a 
double-play. Roger Shoop made 
first on an error, and scored on a 
double to the left by Dana 
Iverson. Hoover then walked, but 
Mike Lawler couldn't keep things 
going. Westmont had scored all 
four of its runs in the third inning, 
through several walks and' 


In the second game, Westmont 
once more got off to the lead, on a 
single, a throwing error, a walk, 
and another single, for one run. 
Another walk, throwing error, 
single and force-out led to two 
more runs in the fifth inning. 
Westmont further increased their 
lead in the sixth with several 
more singles to lead 5-0. 

CLC made its reply in the 
bottom of the seventh inning. Jim 
Willoughby and Dave Barrett 
both grounded out, but then 
Iverson singled and advanced to 
third on a throwing error during. 
the time Paul Ricatto was at bat, 
then scored on another throwing 
error with Ricatto taking second 
and Lawler first. Jeff Bertoni hit 
the big blow next as he cleared 
the 310 ft. mark in left for four 
runs. Westmont won, as CLC 
could get nothing more. 

CLC closed out its season last 
Saturday playing a double- 
header. All to close out a 
disappointing season. 
"Everybody connected with 

baseball was disappointed with 
this year because we didn't do 
better," commented Coach 
Ron Stillwell. "One of things was 
the inconsistent pitching (other 
than Steve Weld). In fact, the 
pitchers were averaging over 4." 

More specifically. Coach 
Stillwell lauded individuals. 
"Steve Weld continues to im- 
prove. He threw a no-hitter, a 
one-hitter, and a two-hitter; 
Hank Bauer hit consistently with 
a .340 average; Jim Willoughby 
hit well in the first half of the 
season and broke the CLC career 
home-run record with 20 some 
homers; Mike Molina should be a 
winner next year; and Steve 
Trumbauer — I'm expecting big 
things out of him." 

Highlights of the season to 
Coach Stillwell seemed to be the 
two wins over Pepperdine, the 
win over Grand Canyon College, 
and the two wins out of three over 
CSU Dominguiez. All three were 
their conference and district 

Sports in Review: Records, 
problems, injuries begin exciting 
and somewhat winning year. 


Football this year never made 
for a dull minute, as we followed 
the fortunes of the team as it 
roller-coasted from week-to- 
week in its 6-4 season. After 
stunning" the Lumberjacks of 
Humbolt St. 14-7, the team suf- 
fered back to back losses to 
Redlands and San Francisco St. 
14-21, and 14-19. CLC recovered 
by beating Cal Poly Pomona 14- 
10, and Claremont-Mudd 10-0 
before losing again to Cal St. Los 
Angeles 27-32. In the final four 
games, CLC won thrice, against 
La Verne 28-24, USIU 42-14, and 
Azusa Pacific College 42-14, with 
the only loss coming to No. 4 
ranked Cal Poly San Luis Obispo 

Injuries have been blamed for 
many of the losses suffered as 
almost the whole team had a 
variety of ailments plaguing 
them through the season. Star- 
ting quarterback Kip Downen 
was lost in the San Francisco 
game with a severe knee injury 
and untried Bill Wilson had to 
enter the game with CLC trailing. 
No doubt, the game with SLO 
could have been closer too, but, 
the team did give a super effort 
according the post game quotes. 
In the other loss, a questionable 
call by the ref disallowed the go- 
ahead touchdown in the Cal Statt 
Los Angeles game. 

Gary Hamm, and Sam 
Cjivanovich left for Canada after 
signing on with the Toronto 
Argonauts of the Canadian 
Football League. Cjivanovich 
had already graduated, and so 
the real dent to next year's plans 
were put in by the loss of wide- 
receiver Hamm who held several 
school records. 


Rugby, that counterpart to 
football, was very successful, 
going 8-1 on the year, and win- 
ning a northern division of a 
Southern California League of 
Clubs. The team was slated to 
enter the Collegiate level finals, 
but UC Berkely dropped from the 
University level down to the 
collegiate, and CLC, being rated 
No. 1 moved up. The ruggers did 
well in winning two and losing 
two at the finals held in Santa 

Dq rhsrn 


Under direction of Coach Don 
Green, the Cross-Country and 
Track teams had excellent, 
record-settuing years. Transfers 

from power Palomar JC, and the 
returning stars lifted the cross- 
country team to above a .500 
percent record. 

The winning ways were carried 
over into the Track program, as 
CLC extended its consecutive 
dual victory skein to 31 , and place 
below first only in the various 
relays. Marks were set in every 
event for new school records, 
some of the most recent were the 
two-mile relay squad of Ron 
Palcic, Steve Blum, Greg 
Dineen, and Ian Cumming (all of 
Cross-country), who ran an 8:20, 
which was 26 seconds faster than 
the mark set in 1966; and Jerry 
Cox who long- jumped 22'4 3 / 4 ". 

Basketball fortunes were 
rather pathetic at times this 
year, as the varsity accounted for 
only three wins out of 30 tries. 
The record can be attributed to 
an inexperienced team and a new 

Fans could look to other 
athletic outlets, as an intramural 
program' was started in 
basketball. Games were played 
every Sunday, Monday, and 
Wednesday nights in the Gym. 
Peak of the season was the 
choosing of an all-star team 
which played in a tournament at 
Pepperdine and took fifth place 

Other zany attractions were 
the Spurs vs. Boys competition 
held, in which the Sophomore 
Boys tried under adjusted rules 
to beat Spurs. Admission 
proceeds went into the Muscular 
Distrophy Foundation. 

The Faculty, headed by Al 
Kempfert of Land Development, 
got into the act and smashed the 
Conejo Civic Leaders. 

Not terribly great in the win- 
loss record like all Interim and 
Spring sports, but there were 
some great highlights in the 
Women's Basketball'ers wins 
over Azusa Pacific, La Verne, 
and Westmont. Volleyball never 
seemed to get off the ground. 

Other sports which seemed to 
suffer disappointing, but in some 
cases still creditable years, were 
Tennis which went even on the 
year, Baseball (14-21 with two 
games remaining). Golf (1-16). 
and Wrestling (May it rest in 

Tennis had the problem of 
finding courts, Baseball the 
problem of finding consistency, 
Wrestling couldn't hack the

Official Registration Procedure 

page 8 

PHASE I April 29 - May 10, 1974 

1. Pick up registration material 
at the Registrar's Office as 

Next fall's juniors and seniors, 
April 29 - May 3 

Next fall-s sophomores, May 6- 

2. Go to the Business Office to 
make an advance payment of 
$50.00 on next fall's tuition. This 
fee is not refundable. 

3. Report to the Dean for 
Student Affairs and have him 
sign the Registration Clearance 
Card. This is a new card. 

4. Make an appointment with 
your academic adviser at his 
office to plan your schedules for 
the fall and spring semesters, 

5. Proceed to the Registrar's 
Office to turn in the registration 
material. This material will not 
be accepted unless the student 
has made the $50.00 payment and 
presents the receipt from the 
Business Office. 


It is one of my privileges as the 
Publications Commissioner to 
write this column. This column 
can become many things; a 
personal sounding board, plain 
gossip, or even counter 
revolutionary literature, but it is 
my hope that it becomes an in- 
strument to stimulate con- 
versation and interest in all areas 
of campus life. That the column 
provides information, par- 
ticularly in regards to student 
government and the various 
commissions which are part of 
that government, is essential. 

Next fall, we have an op- 
portunity to begin anew, to build 
on the experience gained in past 
endeavors. Many people are 
concerned if the problems that 
raised their ugly heads this year 
in publications will reoccur. In 
think not. I believe we have 
learned many valuable lessons 
and will learn from other lessons. 

At this time, I would like to 
introduce the Student 

Publications Commission. I 
attempted to choose a com- 
mission that would be able to 
provide a variety of insights and 
interests, while at the same time 
be able to work together for the 
common good. The Commission 
is an interesting combination of 
new and old, experience and 
enthusiasm. Enough said, here 
are their names: Moira Barker, 
Diane Chamness, Chuck Connor, 
Russell Gordon, and Ed McGee I 
think these commissioners next 
year will provide the talent, 
determination, and sweat needed 
to get the job done. I'm sure that 
they will be open to useful ideas 
in any area of publications or 
answering such questions as they 

I look forward to next year and 
what it can bring. Hard work was 
my only promise and that is one I 
can keep. Speaking of work...

significantly when compared to 

the red tape of years gone by. The 
unique advantage of this new 
form is that its use creates three 
permanent records of who spent 
the money, for what, how much, 
and who approved it. One copy is 
kept by the officer signing for the 
money, another by the business 
office in their permanent files 
once a check has been issued, and 
another in the permanent files of 
the A.S.B. Treasurer. Increased 
accountability is a major gain 
witn this procedure. A side effect 
of having placed the money with 
the business office stems from 
having a relatively non-involved 
"watchdog" observer seeing 
every expense that is made. On 
many occasions this year, I have 
been called by someone in the 
Business Office to confirm that 
such-and-such an expense really 
was approved, or that so-and-so is 
authorized to request funds for 
this-or-that purpose. In all, it is a 
lot harder to slip something by. 
Of course, periodic reports 
from the treasurer have helped 

significantly in keeping the' 
senate informed, each report 
itemizing in detail the expenses 
incurred over several previous 
weeks. And it is appropriate here 
to mention that this year's 
student government has done an 
outstanding job of using A.S.B. 
funds wisely. As I write this, I can 
confidently predict that we will 
boast a surplus of nearly S50O0. 
not a bad effort considering the 
tremendous amount of programs 
sponsored by the A.S.B. this year. 
The officers and the Senate 
should be applauded for a year of 
fiscal responsibility, if for 
nothing else. It is not theirmoney 
they are administrating; it is 
ours, and we should be thankful. 
But I must make one final and 
somewhat sobering remark. 
Though it has gone well with us 
this year, and we have a $5000 
surplus staring us in the face 
(which would do well in retiring 
an annual problem with our 
yearbook payments), there is no 
treasurer for next year. The 
A.S.B. cannot do its mandated 
job without one, and one among 
you must take the initiative to 

From an Old Friend 

To all at CLC: 

The mailman cometh on Saturday and Lo and Behold I found a 
copy of the Kingsmen Echo therein. It was a most welcome paper 
to receive and was consumed line by line. 

As former Superintendent of California Lutheran College I still 
am very interested in the "Goings On" at CLC. Having been a part 
of the college since 1960 until my retirement in 1973 to Brush 
Prairie, Washington, I sit here in retrospect and think about the 
beginning of the college and the changes that have taken place. 
Yes, there were many times when I thought was it all worthwhile 
putting in long hours of labor that I spent there and treasure many 
memories, even to getting up at 3 in the morning to repair a leak or 
to investigate a breakin. 

I see by the reports that California Lutheran College is on the 
move to becoming a greater Christian Collage with a plan for ex- 
panding at it's present location. This project is of immense 
proportions in that it is going to need all the help of all concerned 
people including time and monies. With so many private colleges 
closing their doors in this nation I beg of you not to let this happen to 
California Lutheran College because it is a great college and with 
your support it can become even greater. The college has a good 
Administration Team but they alone can't carrv the ball. It needs 
"Team Work by All." 

To the graduating students: I want to personally wish you the 
best of years ahead and sincerely hope that CLC will always be a 
place that will remain in your hearts and as you grow older you will 
come to realize what a wonderful education you received at CLC 
|o because of many fine people which made it all possible. I only wish 
Bj that I could be present on Graduating Day to see you hold your 
heads up proudly as you march on to greater things.

and the only real satisfaction that 
you can find in it is a job well

money that makes a lot of great 
programs come true here at 
CLC ; it is the $25 A.S.B. fee each

someone now who is willing to put 
in some time next year to keep it 
going. My elected term of office
